Tusayan Forest Service District now offering fuelwood permits
Williams-Grand Canyon News

TUSAYAN, Ariz. - The Williams and Tusayan districts of the Kaibab National Forest started offering permits for the 2013 fuelwood season on April 22, weather permitting.

This year's fuelwood season will run through Dec. 15.

The Forest Service is issuing permits for dead and down, dead standing and downed trees, and green fuelwood cutting. Dead and down permits are $5 a cord. Green permits are $10 per cord. There is a minimum purchase of $20 per permit. Cords are sold in increments to meet the $20 minimum.

The Forest Service is also issuing free-use permits for the removal of downed wood within designated areas. A maximum of six cords (combined) of paid fuelwood may be purchased per household. An additional four cords of free-use fuelwood may also be issued.

The removal of fuelwood is permitted only from National Forest lands on the district for which the permit is issued. Private and other non-Forest Service lands are shown on fuelwood maps attached to the permit, visitor maps and a Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM). The Forest Service reminds fuelwood cutters to take note of property boundaries and cut only on National Forest lands.

Fuelwood cutting is permitted across the entire Williams and Tusayan ranger districts, with the exception of wilderness and other special areas shown on the map attached to the permit. However, the use of motorized vehicles off of the open road system is restricted to designated fuelwood cutting units shown on the map. Within designated cutting areas, fuelwood cutters may drive cross-country off of designated roads in order to find and collect fuelwood. The map attached to each permit clearly identifies the areas where cross-country travel is allowed.

Outside of designated cutting units, fuelwood cutters may park as far as 30 feet off the road to load fuelwood. District rangers encourage cutters get a free MVUM showing the open road system when purchasing a permit. These maps are available at all forest offices and on the Kaibab National Forest website at
