BLM Firewood Permits for Carson City District Available

Posted: Updated:

From the Bureau of Land Management:

With the arrival of fall and colder temperatures, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Carson City District is selling firewood cutting permits to help prepare for the winter months. Pinyon pine and Utah Juniper permits are $10 a cord. Only dead trees, standing or down may be cut. Maps of authorized firewood cutting areas and stipulations are provided when purchasing permits.
 
One cord permits are valid for 30 days and two-cord permits are valid for up to 60 days. Three-plus cord permits are valid up to 90 days.  People may purchase up to ten cords before a commercial firewood cutting permit is required.
 
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.
 
BLM permits for firewood will be sold at the locations listed below.  All locations will accept cash or check and in addition, the Carson City BLM can process credit card orders in person or over the phone.
