ROCK SPRINGS — The Bureau of Land Management’s High Desert District is standardizing wood cutting permits throughout its four field offices in Kemmerer, Pinedale, Rawlins and Rock Springs. Effective immediately, the prices for wood cutting permits in these areas will be as follows:

• Firewood: $7 per cord, minimum two cords

• Christmas trees: $10

• Posts/poles: $1 each

“Standardizing wood cutting permits establishes consistency and will help avoid confusion regarding purchasing permits for firewood, posts, poles and Christmas trees on BLM managed land in our district,” High Desert District Resource Advisor Brandon Teppo said.

Simplifying and regulating the wood cutting permits also supports BLM conservation efforts and responsible stewardship of our public lands. Please note, the wood cutting season on public land runs from May 15 to Nov. 30.
