BAR HARBOR - Acadia National Park offers some of the most beautiful views in New England. Maintaining the historic vistas can be a big undertaking, and leaves behind a lot of excess wood.
"Everywhere you ride on a carriage road and traditionally you would have a view out to the ocean but the trees have grown up," said Acadia National Park Public Affairs Specialist Christie Anastasia. "We go in there and systematically cut them down and that's why we have a little bit more wood than we normally would need at this point."
The park is offering 25-dollar permits for people to come and collect as much as two cords of wood, but there is one condition.
"Right now you have to be within a 50-mile driving radius of Otter Creek to be eligible for the wood," said Anastasia.
To reserve a spot, customers must call (207) 288-8791 between Saturday Cctober 20 and Friday the 26. Around 15 people will be given the chance to collect the wood. All others who call will be put on a waiting list.
"We totally expect some people are going to come collect the wood, dry it out, split it, repackage it and resell it as firewood to visitors," said Anastasia.
Park officials hope to get rid of all the wood by November 2. If selected, a ranger will contact you to schedule a time to pay for and collect the wood.
