Our popular Nanaimo community firewood program kicks off for the Spring 2014 this weekend.
The Nanaimo Diamonds ball team will be fundraising through selling firewood permits at the site. Firewood will be for sale from 8am-3:30pm on both days for $30 cash per cord (truck load). The site is located up Nanaimo Lakes Road, approximately 4.5km from the intersection of Wakesiah and Nanaimo Lakes Road. You will turn left, pass through a gate and travel approximately 5km on logging roads to the site.
Firewood signs should be posted to assist in you finding the route.
Off-road vehicles are not permitted for use on Island Timberlands' property.
Gates and road systems accessing both Mt. Arrowsmith and Mt. Apps will be open this weekend.
The roads are not necessarily maintained at this time.
