The Coconino provides firewood for personal use both on a free-use permit and a paid permit basis. In either case, a permit must be acquired by anyone harvesting any firewood on the National Forest, except for the rather small amounts used in a campfire and gathered at the campfire site. Firewood permit sales begin April 17, 2015. Firewood cutting season starts April 18, 2015 and runs through December 13, 2015. Watch the Forest Products Permits page for up-to-date information.
Fees: Personal Use Paid Permit $5 per cord, $20 (four cord) minimum. Maximum 10 cords per household.
