It should be fairly uniform for the National Forest permits, just go to a ranger station. As for the state-owned land, that obviously varies from state-to-state and you would have to contact your Division of Forests and Lands (or whatever they call it in Maine). Here it's $10 per cord on federal land (no limit I am aware of) and $25 per cord (with a 2-cord limit) on state land.I would be doing the same if we didn't have a bunch of trees that needed to come down anyway. I'm pretty sure Maine has a similar program with the forests for retrieving firewood. We don't have a lot of hardwoods, so it sounds like a good way for us to get some.
