Firewood Permits Available for Jackson Demonstration State Forest


The following is a press release issued by the California Department of Forestry & Fire Protection:

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) Mendocino Unit is pleased to announce the sale of firewood permits on Jackson Demonstration State Forest (JDSF) beginning Friday, August 6, 2021. Firewood permits will be limited to two cords per household at a cost of $20.00/permit.

The firewood area will open, to permit holders, at 12 noon on Monday, August 16″ and is tentatively scheduled to close on October 1″, 2021, or until wood supply is gone, a significant rain event, or other constraints force closure, whichever occurs first. To ensure sufficient wood supply, only 75 permits will be sold.

Because of the presence of Sudden Oak Death, permit sales are limited to Mendocino County residents because the wood cannot be transported out of the county. Permit holders are reminded that fire safety rules require chainsaws to be equipped with an approved spark arrester, and a long-handled shovel or fire extinguisher must be within 25 feet of the operating chainsaw.

Permit holders are also reminded that Mendocino County Health Department orders will apply, and they are responsible for keeping current with these requirements: https://www.mendocinocounty.org/community/novel-

Due to COVID-19, the office is closed to the public, so permit sales will be conducted via U.S. Mail only. Please allow 7-10 days for permit processing. The application for a permit will be available at our website (link below) and printed applications will also be available outside the Fort Bragg office door.

The CAL FIRE Fort Bragg office is located at 802 North Main Street, Fort Bragg, CA (707) 964-5674.
