Beginning at 8 a.m. Wednesday, March 5, free permits will be available for firewood from hazard tree removal at Bandelier National Monument.
There is a limited amount of wood, so only enough permits will be issued to cover what is available. The wood is mostly dry and has been cut and stacked, but not split. Most stacks are reasonably near the places where permittees’ vehicles can be parked, and wheelbarrows will be allowed.
Park staff will escort permittees to the wood collection areas since many piles are in areas currently closed to the public.
