BLM firewood permits for Carson City District available at multiple locations
With the arrival of fall and colder temperatures, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Carson City District is selling firewood cutting permits to help prepare for the winter months. Pinyon pine and Utah Juniper permits are $10 a cord. Only dead trees, standing or down may be cut. Maps of authorized firewood cutting areas and stipulations are provided when purchasing permits.
One cord permits are valid for 30 days and two-cord permits are valid for up to 60 days. Three-plus cord permits are valid up to 90 days. People may purchase up to ten cords before a commercial firewood cutting permit is required.
While out cutting firewood, remember to be in possession of your permit and map. During dry weather, wood cutters should have a fire extinguisher, shovel and bucket of water handy. In addition, all chainsaws must be equipped with spark arrestors.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2012, activities on public lands generated $4.6 billion in revenue, much of which was shared with the States where the activities occurred. In addition, public lands contributed more than $112 billion to the U.S. economy and helped support more than 500,000 jobs.
