Rules of Use

Firewood Season



IEP allows the felling of standing dead trees for personal firewood gathering.

In order to protect Western Larch (Tamarack) trees that seasonally lose their needles and to protect forest roads that soften during fall rains, there are no exceptions to these seasonal dates. 


Each permit allows for the taking of five cords of firewood for personal use.


Gate attendants will check and record the approximate volume of firewood that you are taking from IEP property. 


Firewood must be dead and seasoned.  Gate attendants will require you to offload green wood before exiting the property.


Firewood taken out in lengths must not exceed 6 feet.


When available, QSI will attempt to provide locations for easy access to firewood for disabled individuals.  Call our office for further information.

A reminder:
