We currently have firewood permits available in the following locations.Â Please use the links to complete your permit online.
The Community Forest issues free personal-use firewood permits for areas where we have recently harvested timber. These permits allow for the collection of firewood from the piles of logging debris along the side of the road.Â Our firewood permit program generally runs from fall until spring, closing during forest fire season.Â We follow the provincial government’s Danger Class Rating system and we only issue permits when it is 1 or 2, which is typically between fall and late spring.
If you are interested in providing firewood commercially, please contact us to see how we may be able to help.Â We are interested in ensuring our community has safe, reliable access to firewood supply and recognize that not all community members are in a position to obtain their own firewood from our blocks.
The Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development occasionally offers on-line firewood permits for specific locations on the Sunshine Coast between October and April. 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.
