Firewood Permits Open Spring 2024


Permits are now available starting May 14th in AN03/AN3A/AN15 in our Angus Burnett operating area, between the Sechelt Landfill and Tuwanek along the Sechelt-Dakota Forest Service Road.  All past areas are now closed as the areas have been replanted, and the roads have been deactivated.  These permits will be closed when the fire danger risk rating rises, so don't delay in getting out there for your firewood this spring.

About the permits

During logging, our contractors are asked to pile waste wood suitable for firewood separately from other debris and at roadside to provide access for those looking to collect their own firewood.

Our firewood permit program generally runs from fall until spring, closing during forest fire season.  We follow the BC provincial government’s Danger Class Rating system and we only issue permits when it is 1 or 2.  


We provide updates on the status of firewood permits in our Newsletter - sign up to stay informed.

We're interested in ensuring our community has safe, reliable access to firewood and recognize that not all community members are in a position to obtain their own firewood from our blocks.  This is why we created our Firewood Program, but we are also looking to support commercial firewood suppliers on the Sunshine Coast.  In order to supply firewood commercially, you need to have access to a premises to operate where you can receive logs to process for firewood.

If you're interested in providing firewood commercially, please contact us to see how we may be able to help.  


The Ministry of Forests sometimes has firewood permits available for recently logged areas locally, which are outside of the community forest.  You can find out what areas they have available and get your free personal use permit on their website.
