Firewood Collection for Home Use

Tennessee State Forests offer dedicated areas where Tennessee residents may collect firewood for home use with a free permit. Maps depicting these areas are linked on each forest's webpage and below. The maps include the phone number to call for a free firewood collection permit.

Potential collection areas include:

  • Along certain roadsides within 100 feet of the road.
  • In and around designated forest cemeteries.
  • Old log landings from completed timber sales.
  • Other areas as designated by State Forest personnel.

For more information, call the permit number listed on each map and see the official rules on pages 5 and 6 under Free Use Areas for Firewood Removal.
