Firewood cutting is permitted on Pocomoke State Forest with a permit. Permits are good for one cord of wood, and can be purchased for $8 per permit at the Pocomoke State Forest office.
One cord is approximately two ¾-ton pick-up loads, three ½-ton pickup loads, or six ¼-ton pick-up loads.
Only dead trees laying on the ground and recent logging debris may be cut, and only two permits per family unit will be issued per year. Wood is for personal use only and may not be used commercially.
