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.
July 13, 2017 Update
Firewood permits are not being issued due to the continued warm, dry weather. The Coastal Fire Centre fire danger class is currently 4 (on a scale of 1 to 5). Until significant rain falls we will not consider issuing permits.
When permitting is reopened, our next available area for firewood will be Block WL01 near Wormy Lake.Â An access map will be posted shortly.
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.
