Huron-Manistee National Forests issuing free firewood permits through mail

CADILLAC — The Huron-Manistee National Forests is issuing free firewood permits for 2021 as we continue to manage the need for firewood and keep everyone safe. Those permits will be issued through the mail only, to ensure social distancing is maintained.

Please call your nearest Forest Service Office to request the free firewood permit. These permits will be valid through Dec. 31, 2021.

You will need to provide your full name, address, license plate number, and amount of firewood desired up to 15 cords. Your permit will be filled out by Forest Service staff and mailed to you at the stated address. Your permit will come fully signed and ready for you to harvest your firewood.

Thank you for your patience with the process as we strive to balance public safety and safety of HMNF staff, while continuing to serve the public.
