Firewood Program

Purchase of a Motorized Recreation Access permit allows cutting of firewood when it is available. 

Up to 5 cords of firewood may be cut annually from April 1st to May 31st and from October 16th to March 30th and it may be used for personal use only.  Firewood must be cut from designated areas and removed in firewood lengths.  Firewood tags must be firmly attached to each load of firewood, one tag for every 1/4 cord of wood on the load. 

A cord of firewood measures 4’ x 4’ x 8’ or 128 cubic feet.  A quarter cord measures 4’ x 4’ x 2’ or 32 cubic feet of wood.  The month and day must be fully punched out of each firewood tag that is affixed to the load.  If  your vehicle can carry one cord, you must attach four firewood tags, each with the month and day punched out.  Tags may not be sold, reused or reproduced and additional tags may not be purchased.

Firewood may not be gathered outside the regular firewood season or from outside designated areas.   Winching wood out of units, use of firewood splitters or commercial size vehicles are prohibited.  Cutting snags, buckskin logs, old growth logs and cedar is prohibited.  Maps of firewood areas are available online and may also be available at the recreation access gate that accesses the firewood unit.
