Firewood

September 2015:  Oneida Conservation Department public notice concerning elimination of services.       

Wood Waste Recycling


The Conservation Department does have firewood available at our office located at, N8047 County Road U, however, all hardwood firewood (oak, hickory, maple, ash, birch, etc.) is strictly reserved for wood deliveries made to the elderly and handicapped tribal members who live within the reservation boundaries. The Oneida Conservation Corps (OCC) process and deliver hardwood reserves throughout the winter months. Elderly delivery services begin on November 1st and end on April 1st of every year. Those needing wood can call in to the Conservation Office at (920) 869-1450 to be added to our “Firewood” list. All wood is on a first-come-first-serve basis until supplies are gone. To maximize our distribution services, elderly and handicapped customers will receive one (1) load (approx. 1 face cord) of firewood per request.

Softwood (willow, aspen, boxelder, cottonwood, basswood, etc.) is available to any Oneida Tribal member, however, processing (sizing, splitting) and delivery services are not provided. Softwood is available for pick-up daily (Monday-Friday 8:00am-4:30pm) on a first-come-first-serve basis until gone. Recipients must report to the office prior to picking up wood.

Our goal is to maximize the use of community waste wood materials and provide processing and delivery services to those most in need (we do not buy firewood for distribution). Our primary objective in offering winter firewood is to help subsidize a portion of home heating costs across a wide customer base – not entirely replace other conventional heating sources (it is advisable that people do not become overly reliant on this service or on the availability of firewood).

The Conservation Department also authorizes Wood Cutting Permits. Tribal members are permitted to cut and remove down and dead trees from rural tribal properties. Permits can be obtained from our office Monday – Friday 8:00am – 4:30pm. Permits are $5.00 each and are valid for 30 days after which they will have to be renewed. The permitting process allows our department to monitor non-destructive tree cutting activities.

Wood obtained through the Conservation Department or via Wood Cutting Permit is for personal use only and cannot be sold or exchanged for goods or services.

For more information contact Daniel Brooks, Forester/OCC Supervisor, at the Oneida Conservation Department: Office: (920)869-1450.
