    State plans lottery

    for firewood lots

    WATERBURY — Vermonters will have a chance to cut their own firewood from state forests.

    This year, roadside lots are available in Plymouth, Shrewsbury, North Duxbury, Orange, Roxbury, Johnson, Groton, and Westmore.

    The lottery for the “cut-your-own” lots opens on Jan. 2 and ends Jan. 18.

    Lottery winners pay $30 for a lot that yields about three cords of wood from trees marked for removal. The firewood is suitable for the 2013 home heating season.

    Lottery winners will be notified in March.

    Registrations are available at the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation website at www.vtpr.org or call 241-3678 for more information.
