SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Santa Fe National Forest will begin selling personal-use fuelwood permits June 27. Permits can be purchased in person at forest headquarters in Santa Fe and at offices in Española, Coyote, and Cuba. The Jemez District will sell permits over the phone. Fuel wood permit sales were delayed this year because of fire in the Jemez and Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The Pecos/Las Vegas District Offices will sell permits for green wood once Rowe Mesa is open to public access.
