BLM Ely District offers firewood for sale 2022

ELY, Nev. – The Bureau of Land Management Ely District is offering cord units of mixed pinyon-juniper firewood to the public for $85 per cord. The firewood was generated through the South Steptoe Valley Watershed Restoration Project.

“This landscape-scale habitat improvement and fuels reduction project restores vegetative health and improves wildlife habitat while reducing catastrophic wildfire risk on public lands south of Ely,” Cody Coombs, BLM Ely District supervisory natural resources specialist, said.

The wood is cut in rounds that vary in length from approximately 12-20 inches and in diameter from 3-26 inches. It has been recently cut (green) and is stacked in one-cord piles along two-track roads. The exact location(s) will be made available upon purchase of permit.

Purchasers are limited to five cords until October 3. The BLM may make additional cords available after October 3, provided any wood remains. The purchaser is responsible for loading and removal. Removal will be allowed Thursdays and Fridays between 1:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. beginning October 6 and ending October 21, and Saturday, October 15 between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
