NM Landowner’s Fuelwood Removal Permit

New Mexico landowners have the right to use privately held forest products (see: Forest Conservation Act [68-2-1 to 68-2-25 NMSA 1978] )

Landowners have the right to convert forest vegetative types to nonforest vegetative types for such purposes as range, wildlife habitat, farming, surface mining or subdivision development; provided, however, any slash resulting from such conversion shall be treated in a manner that will minimize the spread of forest fires and the possibility of insect epidemic.  

This agreement form provides documentation for private sales by New Mexico landowners

Signed agreements should be held by the landowner and cooperating party to ensure law enforcement can be sure of the origin of such wood. 

Remember that all forest products taken from a National Forest require a valid permit.
