New Forest Mapping Agreement Contributes to Regional Economic Growth

The Yukon government is initiating a new forest vegetation inventory for the Haines Junction area that will map and provide a detailed description of 1.47 million hectares of southwestern Yukon forest.


Personal Firewood Permits

The Yukon 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 & Inspections office. Permits are often issued over the counter at the time of application.
