Contact your local DCNR office.  The will sell you a permit and tell you where you can cut on state owned land.  I have not done this, but I know people that do it every year, they get some nice wood typically oak.

Thanks for the tip Mike!  I have 10 acres of trees, on my property but don't always want to cut all my own trees down and my family has lots of land but i am about 1.5hrs from where my family is.  Since i live in PA as well i thought i might as well post back for HappyCamper.  Here is the response i got from the PA forestry service:

Hello Jarrod,
Yes, we do have Fuelwood cutting permits available.  We have permits to cut in Oil Creek State Park and in the Cornplanter State Forest.  The permits are $15.00/cord.  If you would like one the procedure is:

Mail a check or money order for the number of cords you are going to cut along with your name, address, phone number, the license plate number on the truck you’ll be using and the area you would like to cut and I will mail one out to you.  Or you could bring a check or money order into the office in Warren and I will give you a permit there.  If you have any questions do not hesitate to call me at the phone number listed below.

(I live in the cornplanter forestry district)

Oil Creek state park i pass every day on my too and from work, i might have to cut a couple cords from there : ).

Here is the link to email them HappyCamper:
