Free firewood offered at Carondelet and two other parks for St. Louis city residents


Examples of the free firewood available for city of St. Louis residents at Carondelet, Forest Park and O’Fallon Park.

The City of St. Louis Department of Parks, Recreation & Forestry will offer free firewood to city of St. Louis residents at three locations, through the first week of March 2021:

  • Forest Park — Lower Muny Parking Lot
  • O’Fallon Park — North of picnic site #4
  • Carondelet Park — Compost and recycling site off Holly Hills Drive

All the available wood comes from the removal of dead and/or structurally damaged and dangerous trees from city streets and parks. Wood is generally dropped at the sites in the afternoon, Monday through Friday when available. However, daily firewood supply is not guaranteed.

The wood from tree maintenance operations will vary in size and species when left for city residents to pick up. It is offered on a first come, first served basis. Ash wood will not be dropped off or available at any of the three listed locations.

Free firewood will be available until the first week of March 2021.

Commercial vehicles and trailers are strictly prohibited ue to city park restrictions. Please feel free to contact the Forestry Division directly at 314-613-7200 for more information if needed.
