Free collection permits are available to harvest and transport firewood from Crown lands for personal use.
Firewood permits are available online at gov.bc.ca/firewoodpermits.
Permits and their associated documentation describe the permitted areas, methods, and amount of firewood that can legally be harvested.
Cutting down trees on Crown land without a permit, or selling firewood, is an ongoing concern in B.C. This activity is illegal and could result in a violation ticket or fine.
