Timber processing facilities regulations

The Forest Management Branch is seeking input on proposed concepts for new regulations on timber processing facilities. These regulations will establish definitions, thresholds and the method of issuing permits relating to timber processing facilities in Yukon.

The deadline for public input is June 30, 2015.


Personal firewood permits

The Forest Management Branch would like to remind Yukoners that a Forest Resources Permit is required to cut firewood for personal use. 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 the cutting of 25 m3 (11 cords) or less of firewood for uses such as heating your home.

Apply for your permit at your local Compliance Monitoring & Inspection office. Permits are often issued over the counter at the time of application.
