WINNEMUCCA — The Bureau of Land Management Winnemucca District has woodcutting permits available for purchase at the Winnemucca District Office, 5100 E. Winnemucca Blvd. during regular business hours, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

Permits are also available at the Pershing County Farm Service Agency, 110 American Blvd, Lovelock, NV during business hours, 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Included in the purchase of the permit is an informational packet with the terms of the permit and a map of woodcutting areas.  

The woodcutting permits can be purchased for $5.00 a cord with an additional $1.00 per cord road maintenance fee.

 Designated sites for woodcutting include the Stillwater Range, which is open to the cutting of live or dead Juniper and dead Pinyon Pine, and Lee Canyon and Yellowstone Canyon open to cutting of live or dead Juniper.

Woodcutters are required to comply with all permit terms and conditions.

Some roads to these areas may be inaccessible at this time due to weather conditions. Permittees should plan ahead and be prepared for sudden changes in weather and road conditions.  

Pack warm blankets, extra clothing, first-aid kit, extra food and water, heavy rope or chain, shovel and tire chains and other adverse weather emergency equipment.

Since dry conditions still exist, to minimize the risk of wildfire, woodcutters should have a shovel and extra water available and all chainsaws must be equipped with functioning spark arrestors.

 Permits are non-refundable, authorized for use only on BLM-managed lands and may not be transferred to another party.
