    Vt. opens lottery

    for firewood cutters

    MONTPELIER — The Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation will open the lottery for personal roadside firewood lots on state forest lands on Jan. 2.

    The two-week registration for “cut-your-own” lots ends Jan. 16. Each roadside lot costs $30 and yields about three cords of wood for the 2014 home heating season.

    Trees are marked and lottery winners get a tour from Forest and Parks staff members on which trees are available for cutting.

    This year roadside lots are available in the towns of Duxbury, Orange, Johnson, Groton, Westmore and Sutton. Participants will need to indicate where they prefer to cut.
