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 2, 2016 Update
Firewood permits are being issued once again but will be shorter term permits until we get past the upcoming dry weather trend.Â The available block to obtain firewood is our last harvested Block AN02.Â
This block has three separate sections.Â The first is located on the Forest Service road.Â It can be accessed either from Dusty Road (past the landfill), which is the only option for those without 4 wheel drive, or from the other end of the Forest Service Road near Tuwanek.Â This is the entry off Sechelt Inlet Road which access the Tetrahedron Park but stay right to access our firewood block.Â This access choice will require 4 wheel drive.Â The other two sections of Block AN02 are further up another marked access road.Â It is preferable to have 4 wheel drive to access either of these sections.
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.
