Be prepared that gate times are prompt and if you are not out in time, your vehicle will be locked behind the gate for the evening.

To harvest firewood, cash for a permit is required at the gate (except in Port Alberni, permits available through Alberni Fish and Game Club).  Cost varies from $20-$30 per load.  You must show suitable safety gear to be issued a permit; this includes eye protection, hard hat, chainsaw pants and protective footwear.
