BLM Ely District offers firewood for sale

ELY, Nev. – The Bureau of Land Management Ely District is offering to the public cord units of mixed pinyon-juniper firewood for $40 per cord. The firewood was generated through the South Steptoe Valley Watershed Restoration Project. The project restores vegetative health and improves wildlife habitat while reducing catastrophic wildfire risk on public lands south of Ely.

The wood is cut in rounds that vary in length from 10-20 inches and in diameter from 3-26 inches. It is stacked in approximately half to one-cord piles along a two-track road.

Purchasers are limited to five cords until October 2. The BLM will make additional cords available after October 2, provided any wood remains. The purchaser is responsible for loading and removal.

Permits are available between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the BLM Ely District Office, 702 North Industrial Way, in Ely.

For more information, call the BLM at (775) 289-1800.
