BLM Issues Firewood Permits in Billy Creek Area


Firewood permits for the Billy Creek area, located in the Big Horn Mountains, are available from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Buffalo Field Office for the 2011 season.

Permits are $7.00 per cord and limited to five cords per person. There is an additional $1.50 road maintenance fee per permit. Individuals must show up in person at the Buffalo Field Office, located at 1425 Fort Street, Buffalo, WY 82834, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. to purchase a permit.

Actual cutting began on Thursday, July 15. All available areas and individual trees will be designated and marked by BLM prior to the sale. Firewood can be cut in these areas, and only those trees marked are available for firewood use. This area will remain open until the road is closed by snow.

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 mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
