It tickles me to be able to use a (high-tech) blog to announce that the Forestry Division will be offering (low-tech) firewood free to City residents on the Lower Muny Opera parking lot in Forest Park.
The wood, which all comes from the removal of dead or damaged trees from the City’s streets and parks, will be available after 3 pm each work day, beginning November 5. The daily wood supply will vary, as will size and species. It is offered on a first come, first served basis. It will be available as long as the wood supply lasts, usually until the first week in March.
Due to park restrictions (and a sense of fair play), no commercial vehicles or trailers are permitted.
For more information, call the Forestry Division at (314) 613-7200.
