In addition, weekend firewood is available in the Shawnigan Lake area at 4890 Waters Road. Permits are $30 for a personal truck load - one load per permit.
Around Victoria Day long weekend, an additional firewood option should come available outside of Nanaimo, on our property at the intersection of Extension Road and White Rapids Road.
As always, personal safety equipment is absolutely necessary to purchase a permit. This includes chainsaw pants, eye protection, hearing protection and stable footwear.
A "truckload" refers to either the box of a pick-up truck or a similarly sized tow trailer. Each load costs the gate price; a maximum of six permits for six loads will be sold to one group per day.
Happy safe cutting.
