The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) said two field offices in Nevada and its information center in Bishop, California, are selling permits to cut firewood for personal use.
Permits allow individuals to collect either green or dead wood from pinyon pines and/or junipers, the BLM release said. The cost is $5 per cord plus a $1 road maintenance fee for each cord purchased. Residents may collect between one and five cords for a period of 90 days following permit purchase; additional permits are valid for 180 days after purchase.
Permits are being sold at the Battle Mountain District Office (Battle Mountain) and Tonopah Field Office (Tonopah), which are open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Inyo National Forest’s White Mountain Public Lands Information Center in Bishop, California, will also sell permits from Nov. 1 through Dec. 31; their office is open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the release said.
BLM said the permits are for personal use only. For constituents residing over an hour’s drive from either office, permits may be issued via telephone. BLM reminds all parties to bring permits and check maps carefully to ensure compliance.
