This handbook outlines forest management and planning activities and is intended to assist in understanding how forestry is carried out in Yukon. It includes information useful to forest users, educators and the general public on topics such as forest inventory methods and forest health indicators.


Personal firewood permits

If you wish to cut firewood for personal use, you need a Forest Resources Permit. Failure to have a permit or carry it with you when cutting or transporting wood could result in a fine.

This permit is free and authorizes you to cut up to 25 m3 (11 cords) of firewood for uses such as heating your home.

Get a permit at your local Compliance Monitoring & Inspection office. Permits are usually issued over the counter at the time of application.
