With the arrival of fall, many people want to cut firewood for the
coming cooler months. Wood cutting permits are required to harvest forest
products from public lands, and are available at the Bureau of Land
Management (BLM) Kingman Field Office, 2755 Mission Blvd, Kingman, Arizona.
The permits go on sale Thursday, October 1, 2009, at 8 am.
“We have a limited number of wood cutting permits available this
year,” said BLM Kingman Field Manager Ruben Sanchez. “The permits will be
sold on a first-come, first-served basis in our office until they’re gone.
This year we’ve added an additional stipulation to the wood cutting permit.
People must sign in at a visitor’s register on site when they enter the
wood cutting area and sign out when they leave. A map will be provided
with each permit. The wood cutting area will be patrolled.”
The woodcutting permits cost $10.00 a cord with a maximum of two
cords per household. The permits may be used for live or dead Pinyon Pine
or Juniper (down or standing). Woodcutters are encouraged to make use of
the many stumps remaining from previous woodcutting, as large standing
trees are limited.
The permits are good from October 3, 2009 through December 20, 2009,
and are only valid in the designated woodcutting area which is
approximately 11 miles southeast of Truxton, AZ. A map to the woodcutting
area and cutting rules are included with each permit.
