The Colorado State Forest Service is offering firewood from the State Forest in north-central Colorado for $10 per cord.

The CSFS is selling self-serve permits for the low fee to encourage citizens to help remove a build-up of dead wood in the area that inhibits new growth and could fuel an intense wildfire. Removing wood will also help reduce logging debris in the vicinity of main roads and trails, to address public safety concerns and improve aesthetics.

How to Get State Forest Firewood

Those interested in harvesting the firewood should come prepared with a chainsaw and personal protective equipment. A majority of the wood is adjacent to County Road 41 and other forest roads. The wood simply needs to be cut into manageable sizes and hauled off. The CSFS asks that all vehicles pull as far off the road as possible to reduce the risk of an accident.

Colorado State Forest Service Firewood Permits

A Colorado State Parks pass is required to recreate in the State Forest, but not to gather firewood with a permit. Interested woodcutters can buy a $10 permit and pick up a map of the firewood area on a self-serve basis at the CSFS office located at 59228 Highway 14 (6 miles west of Cameron Pass and adjacent to Ranger Lakes). For more information about the State Forest firewood program, call 970-723-4505.
