BLM woodcutting permits for Taos County area now on sale

Posted

The Bureau of Land Management Taos Field Office is now selling personal-use fuelwood permits.

Permits cost $12 per cord, and people can buy up to eight cords. Only dead (down or standing) piñon and juniper are covered by the permit.

Unlike permits for the Carson National Forest, BLM fuelwood permits are valid for 30 days after the date of purchase, or December 31, whichever comes first.

The following BLM public lands are closed to fuelwood cutting to protect sensitive resources, including endangered species: Río Grande Gorge (rim to rim), Ute Mountain, Orilla Verde Recreation Area, Wild Rivers Recreation Area, Río Grande Wild & Scenic River Corridor, Taos Valley Overlook, Guadalupe Mountain (where hunting is excluded), Ojo Caliente Wilderness Character Area, San Antonio Wilderness Area, Río Chama Wilderness Study Area, Río Chama Wild & Scenic River Corridor and Santa Cruz Lake near Chimayó.

Penalties for cutting or removing wood from BLM lands without a valid fuelwood permit can be more than $300. For more information, contact BLM forester Elyssa Duran at (575) 758-8851.
