Updated hours for Fuelwood Permit Sales on the Cibola National Forest and National Grasslands

The court-ordered injunction suspending all timber management activities on the five national forests in New Mexico and the Tonto National Forest in Arizona has been modified to allow the personal cutting and collection of fuelwood. The Cibola National Forest will resume permit sales immediately.

Hours have been added for the Mt Taylor Ranger District. The other offices remain the same. Please see the specific Ranger District sales end dates for fuelwood permits.
