Fuelwood Opportunity on Jemez Ranger District

SANTA FE, NM – Nov. 7, 2017 – For Immediate Release. Looking to replenish your woodpile before the snow starts falling? The Santa Fe National Forest invites fuelwood permit holders to take advantage of recent thinning projects along Forest Road (FR) 376 near the Gilman Tunnels to collect firewood for the winter.

The wood has already been felled, limbed and bucked into six-foot lengths for the convenience of the public. All you need to collect up to five cords of wood is a valid fuelwood permit which can be purchased for $20. The FR 376 fuelwood area will be open until Dec. 31, 2017.

You may purchase a fuelwood permit at any Santa Fe National Forest office and at the Walatowa Visitor Center (near mile marker 8 on NM Highway 4). Forest Service offices are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Permits can be purchased at the Walatowa Visitor Center on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The Walatowa Visitor Center accepts cash or check, no credit cards.
