Corps issuing free firewood permits


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mountain Home Project Office will begin issuing free firewood permits, for personal use, Monday for about 80 acres on Bull Shoals Lake. Permits are valid through March 31st.

Trees were cut earlier as part of a timber stand improvement project. Permit holders will be allowed to remove downed hickory, ash, elm and cedar trees at Indian Point in the Price Place area and Strawberry Point across from Bull Shoals Lake Boat Dock. No standing trees can be cut.

Individuals must have a permit before cutting/removal of any firewood from these areas, and selling of this firewood is strictly prohibited.

Permits may be picked up at the Corps of Engineers office at 324 West Seventh Street in Mountain Home or by contacting Natural Resource Specialist Ty Fowler at 870-425-2700, ext. 1433.
