Personal Use Fuelwood

A permit must be acquired by anyone harvesting any fuelwood on the Kaibab National Forest, except for the rather small amounts used in a campfire and gathered at the campfire site.

The 2016 firewood cutting season runs from April 15 to Dec. 31 for the Williams and Tusayan districts and from May 2 to Nov. 30 for the North Kaibab district. The minimum cost for a personal use fuelwood permit is $20, which is good for four cords of wood.

The following are documents and maps for each district regarding criteria and restrictions for personal use fuelwood permits and harvesting. Restrictions and guidelines vary per district. Standing dead cutting information is listed on each Paid Personal Use maps for Williams and Tusayan Districts.

Forest Products for Traditional and Cultural Purposes

The Kaibab National Forest has a policy for providing free forest products to Native Americans for traditional and cultural purposes. The objective of this policy is to accommodate traditional use of the forest by Native Americans while ensuring that collection of forest products does not result in undesirable impacts to natural and cultural resources.

Firewood is stacked neatly for future home heating use.
