Hiawatha National Forest Extends Free Personal Use Firewood Cutting

Gladstone, MI – October 19, 2020 – The Hiawatha National Forest is extending free personal use firewood cutting permits across the Forest until the end of the calendar year, December 31, 2020.

“As a continued public benefit during this difficult time, the Hiawatha National Forest is extending free personal use firewood permits,” said Cid Morgan, Hiawatha Forest Supervisor. “The Forest is working to bring the ease of firewood permits online as well, hopefully by later November timeframe.”

Currently free personal use firewood permits would be set to expire October 31, 2020. If folks have already obtained a permit, it will automatically extend and there is no need to obtain a new permit. If you wish to purchase a permit during this time of social distancing, a personal use firewood permit will be issued upon request by calling one of the district offices:

Manistique, Munising or Rapid River Districts
(906) 387-2512 or (906) 474-6442

St. Ignace or Sault Ste Marie Districts
(906) 643-7900 or (906) 298-0111

If needed, please leave a message with your name and phone number and we will return your call.

Please have the following information on hand to obtain your permit:

  • Full name
  • Driver’s license or other identification number and expiration date
  • Address
  • License plate number
  • The amount of firewood desired

Standing dead and down trees may be gathered for firewood. Further guidelines for cutting will be provided with the permit. This authority applies only to non-commercial firewood cutting on Hiawatha National Forest system lands.
