Reducing Fuels with Firewood

The Pikes Peak Ranger District is opening up a new firewood cutting area to reduce fuel for wildfires.

It's the Manitou Experimental Forest in Teller County just six miles north of Woodland Park.

The cutting begins Monday, August 16th. The gate will be open Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm and Saturday and Sunday from 7:00am to 6:00pm. Wood will sell for $20 per cord.

You'll need a firewood permit to gain access to the area.

If you'd like more information on the firewood area, call the Pikes Peak Ranger District at 636-1602.
