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.
