Forest Officials Require Visible Tags On Firewood


A new tag system for forest fuelwood permits will be implemented on April 1 to improve accountability and enforcement.

Permit holders must now physically attach tags to fuelwood loads before departing the location of harvest. Permit holders will still be required to fill out the Removal Record on the permits.

Payson and Pleasant Valley Ranger District Forester Pam Rule said, “This new system will assist forest personnel in determining at a glance whether or not an individual has a permit for fuelwood removal. Use of the tag system will help to reduce fuelwood theft and related resource damage.”

Prices and other conditions with fuelwood permits will remain the same.
