Colville National Forest Firewood Permits Now Available

COLVILLE, Wash. (April 4, 2018) - Firewood permits on the Colville National Forest are now available for sale at all Colville National Forest offices and at North 40 locations in Colville, Mead and Spokane Valley; Porter’s Plaza in Ione; Selkirk Ace Hardware in Old Town, ID and Harding’s Hardware in Republic. Permits are $5 dollars a cord with a 4-cord minimum ($20.00) and a 12-cord maximum per household. To purchase a personal use firewood permit please visit your local ranger station or one of the vendors.

With the spring melt underway, many forest roads are soft and easily damaged; please stay off soft roads and remember frozen roads in the morning may be unpassable that afternoon when they thaw. Forest visitors will need to be extra diligent when traveling or cutting firewood on the Forest this year as both the Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) and Firewood Cutting and Removal Map may show routes as open that are temporarily closed because the road has been damaged or is impassible.

Please note that Colville National Forest firewood permits are no longer available at the Spokane District Bureau of Land Management office at 1103 N. Fancher Rd., Spokane Valley.

Don't move your firewood over long distances. Moving firewood long distances can transport dangerous invasive pests. It’s always best to buy it or cut it where you plan on burning it. For more info: www.dontmovefirewood.org/. For more information about the Colville National Forest personal use firewood program, please visit our website at http://www.fs.usda.gov/colville/  or call (509) 684-7000.
