The Community Forest issues firewood permits, free of charge, for harvested areas within its tenure boundaries.Â Only the Community Forest can issue permits for these areas, no other permit is valid within our tenure boundaries.Â Likewise, our permits are not valid for any areas outside of our boundaries.Â Our firewood permits are not available on line.Â You must come in to our office to obtain a permit.Â Our hours are sporadic so please call first to ensure we are open.
The Fire Weather Danger Class has quickly reached 3.Â Personal use firewood permits are no longer being issued by the Community Forest.Â They will be issued again when the Danger Class falls below 3.Â Please contact us to inquire about availability.
The current location for firewood is Block HM48 in the Trout Lake area.Â Access to this block is somewhat difficult and will require 4WD and strong tires (ie 10 ply) as the road is quite rough.
The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations offers on-line firewood permits for specific locations of the Sunshine Coast between October and April.Â In addition to the permit, you must download a map relevant to your area to see the available locations. You can get more information on their website.
