Fuelwood Permits Available At BLM

Mountain Mail reports

The Socorro Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management is offering personal use fuelwood permits for BLM-administered lands near Pelona Mountain, Pie Town and Blue Topaz Ranch in Catron County, New Mexico, and near the Montosa Ranch in Socorro County, New Mexico, from August 9 to December 31, 2010.
Dead and downed wood may be harvested in the Pelona fuelwood area located near Coyote Peak, the Pie Town WUI fuelwood area located immediately east and south of Pie Town, the San Ignacio fuelwood area located south and east of the Blue Topaz Ranch subdivision, and/or the Wolf Wells fuelwood area located 12 miles west of Magdalena. Access in the fuelwood areas is limited to existing roads to help minimize resource damage.
A personal use fuelwood permit is required and may be purchased at the BLM’s Socorro Field Office at 901 South Highway 85 (California Street) in Socorro, NM.
Permits cost $12.00 per cord with a four cord limit per individual. All wood permits are issued for personal use only and are non-refundable, non-transferable, not for resale, and valid for 30 days after issuance. (Severe fire or weather conditions could affect the permit expiration date.)
Cutting of standing live or dead trees is not allowed in any of the designated fuelwood areas, and the resale of fuelwood collected from these personal use fuelwood areas is also prohibited.
Maps, directions to the fuelwood areas, and further instructions will be issued along with the fuelwood permits at the Socorro Field Office. Anyone with questions can visit the Socorro Field Office or call 575-835-0412.
