SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Santa Fe National Forest offices are selling permits to cut dead and downed trees for firewood for personal use.
Forest officials say the permits went on sale earlier this week and cost $20 for five cords of wood.
Information on firewood areas is available at the forest headquarters in Santa Fe at 505-438-5300, or at ranger stations in Coyote, Cuba, Las Vegas, Espanola, Jemez Springs and Pecos.
The Santa Fe National Forest covers about 1.6 million acres in north-central New Mexico. It's one of five national forests in the state.
