What are the regulations regarding taking wood from the parks? If there are fallen trees, can I take any of it? How about branches?

I'm going to lean toward the negative, but I have no idea really. I say that with the line of thought that the trees are part of the ecosystem, fallen or standing. A fallen tree could still provide habitat to some creature.

Again, I have no idea but that's my 2 cents.

You aren't allowed to remove anything from state parks. In some you can collect firewood for use within the park, but it varies with the park. You can't collect firewood in Umstead.

This. That's why the fallen trees are still there. It's actually illegal to remove them. Wildlife officials only remove them in they are laying across a path. Otherwise they stay where they fell.

You want branches, come to my house. My "wood pile" (yard waste) is stacked pretty high!
