Submitted by on August 7, 2020 – 12:30 amNo Comment

The Mio Ranger District of the Huron-Manistee National Forests has a new opportunity for residents who cut their own firewood.

The Mio Green Firewood Area, located seven and half miles east of Highway 33 on the Evans Road, was developed to help improve forest landscape conditions by thinning trees while simultaneously providing an opportunity for the public to cut live and dead trees for firewood.

The area permits the cutting of all hardwood trees, except for aspen or any tree that has been marked with orange paint. Conifer trees are also off limits.

A specific firewood permit for this area is required. They are $5 each and can be purchased from the Mio Ranger District Office. A map of the Mio Green Firewood Area will be provided with each permit.
