Fuelwood permits available for sale on Coronado National Forest

Tucson, AZ-December 4, 2018-Fuelwood permits are available for sale on each of the five geographic units (Ranger Districts) on Coronado National Forest.


Fuelwood collecting seasons vary by district, as do permit prices and cutting locations.  Some districts allow collection of standing dead wood, while others allow for only dead-and-down wood. In some locations wood is piled and easy to access. In others, more remote locations provide opportunities for a more adventuresome outing. Details and maps will be provided with the permits.
