Firewood Sales

Permits will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. Individuals wishing to obtain a firewood permit from south St. Louis County lands should monitor the website until a site is advertised for a location which interests them. 

Permit Specifics
  • The cost of each permit is $20.00 and must be in the form of a check or money order made out to the St. Louis County Auditor. Sorry, we do not accept cash
  • Up to 10 cords of wood may be taken per permit
  • The duration of each permit is 4 weeks
  • Households may only have one active permit at any one time

Firewood permits will be sold to the first individual purchasing it from the Pike Lake Office.

Firewood Availability

The number of sites available for firewood permits has decreased in recent years.  This is due to a combination of factors including increased utilization of logging slash from many operators, environmental requirements that a percentage of logging slash remain and be distributed on site, and the downturn in the wood products industry.  As the County will have only a limited number of sites available for firewood in the future and that many logging sites have remote or winter only access, individuals are encouraged to explore other means of obtaining firewood.
