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 Thursday, July 13th, 2023 at 1:00pm. 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 2 pm on Thursday, July 13th and is tentatively scheduled to close on October 1st, 2023, 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.

The CAL FIRE Fort Bragg office is located at 802 North Main Street, Fort Bragg, CA (707) 964-5674. For more information about the Jackson Demonstration State Forest visit
