Many municipalities offer free firewood to residents willing to haul it away. Oyster Bay, New York, lets people pick up one free truckload of firewood from the town’s highway yard on the weekends. The wood comes cut but not split, so you do need to put in a little work yourself before it’s ready to burn. Other towns have similar programs, such as the Athol Community Wood Bank in Massachusetts, which converts the trees it cuts down for hazard mitigation and forest management into usable firewood for residents.
