    MONTPELIER — The Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation has opened the lottery for “cut-your-own” firewood lots on state forest lands.

    The two-week registration for the personal roadside lots ends Jan. 16. Each roadside lot costs $30 and yields out 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.
