Due to concerns over the threat of invasive insect species and wishing to act as good stewards of the Councils’ forests, this committee recommends that the transportation of any firewood into Leatherstocking camps be prohibited. From November 15th to March 31st one load of firewood will be provided for each rented cabin. The cost of these cabins will be increased by $25 per weekend to cover the cost of the firewood. Additional firewood will be available for purchase if needed.
