I was up at 909 this past sat, went for a walk with my fiance. But as you come in from tyrell rd and all the way to where the trail makes a T. if you follow up to the left there is a old brick fireplace but just past there, there is a whole logging crew up there tearing the place apart. any1 know whats goin on.
Tyrell is state land... People go there to get firewood, if they have permits. As for a tree crew... I don't know why they would be up there, but I'm sure soon enough we will know. Maybe they were just clearing up some of the fallen timber from storms and whatnot.
I think they log all that land. I remember seeing skidder marks everywhere, and a lot of the trees are numbered or marked with paint. I think if your looking for firewood, you can only pick up what is on the ground, but dont quote me on that.
DEC opens sections up to bidding for timber harvest, thats whats happening @ 909.
You need to get a $15 permit from DEC to take any firewood (see the Tyrrel kiosk for info).
Also in the kiosk is a map of the roads legal for driving.
The park is mainly for non-motorized use, so the atv's, dirtbikes, and 4x4's that still go there are fanning the flames. Where you might have been greeted by smiles or indifference before, less likely now.
