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 check our office hours or call 604-885-7809 first to ensure we are open.
September 19, 2017 Update
Short-term permits are now being issued.Â Until there is more consistent rain in the forecast we are only issuing permits valid until September 24, to be reassessed next week.
The one available area for firewood is Block WL01 near Wormy Lake (where the fire was in 2015).Â Click here to see an Access Map to the block.Â A more detailed map will be provided with the firewood permit.
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.
