Firewood Permits

Firewood Permit Sample

The Community Forest issues firewood permits, free of charge, for harvested areas within its tenure boundaries.  Only the Community Forest can issue permits for these areas, no other permit is valid within our tenure boundaries.  Likewise, our permits are not valid for any areas outside of our boundaries.  Our firewood permits are not available on line.  You must come in to our office to obtain a permit.  Our hours are sporadic so please call 604-885-7809 first to ensure we are open.

The current locations for firewood are Block HM48 in the Trout Lake area (access is somewhat difficult and will require 4WD and strong tires (ie 10 ply) as the road is quite rough) and Block AN13 in Sechelt (access from Dusty Road above the Landfill).

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.  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.
