The Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service announce that "personal use" firewood permits are available for purchase. Permits can be purchased for $10 per cord, with a two-cord minimum requirement.
The maximum limit is 10 cords per household each year. Only payment by cash or check is accepted.
Road closures may still remain in areas that some folks may wish to access for firewood cutting. Persons interested in access for fuelwood cutting and/or recreation are encouraged to check on road status and area closures before venturing out. Please be aware of fuel and fire conditions in the area. Practice safe use and fueling with chainsaws and be prepared with a shovel and water should a fire occur.
