SFNF: Forest Personal Use Firewood Permits On Sale

SFNF News:
SANTA FE After one of the driest fire seasons on record, Santa Fe National Forest personnel want to remind the public that the Forest is open for fuelwood collection, but with a “twist”.
“We want to make up for the time lost during our closure by raising the limit on dead and down fuelwood from 10 to 15 cords,” said Jamie Bennett, district ranger for the Cuba Ranger District. “The permit will allow wood gathering until Dec. 31, 2018.”
Personal use permits are available to acquire a variety of other forest products on the Forest such as permits for latillas, vigas, and cedar posts, as well as various live species transplants sold under “wildling permits,” each of which is available on specific districts.
Permits are available with current identification at any USDA Forest Service office, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Permits also can be purchased 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday at the Walatowa Visitor Center on N.M. 4, eight miles north of US 550/N.M. 4 Junction.
For more information on the availability of permits, cost, hours of operation, and for detailed location maps, contact the USDA Forest Service office of your choice:
