BLM firewood permits available at multiple locations

By ThisIsReno

blm_logoThe Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Carson City District is continuing to sell firewood cutting permits at multiple locations. Pinyon pine and Utah Juniper permits are $10 a cord. People may purchase up to ten cords before a commercial firewood cutting permit is required. Only dead trees – standing or down – may be cut.

One cord permits are valid for 30 days and two to three cord permits are valid for up to 60 days. Four plus cord permits are valid up to 90 days.  Maps of authorized firewood cutting areas and stipulations are provided when purchasing permits.

While out cutting firewood, remember to be in possession of your permit and map.  During dry weather, wood cutters should have a fire extinguisher, shovel and bucket of water handy. In addition, all chainsaws must be equipped with spark arrestors. Please stay on existing roads and report any permit violations to the Carson City District Office at 775-885-6000.
