You know I just love being surrounded by crown land.Just pay $5 for a wood cutting permit and away you go.Permit is good for 30 days and allows you to cut up to 5 cubic meters which is about two good loads of a full size truck or about 5 loads for a Ranger..lol

So what do you guys/gals do for campfire wood?Cut your own or buy a load at a time?

Looks like nice wood sonny.

Have 70 acres out here with about 25 treed so I cut my own on my land. A few dried standing spruce but mostly poplar.

Things are some what relaxed here when it comes to cutting wood, most people just head out on crown land and cut dried standing wood with no permit, we have for years never have been questioned on it.

I take it when I can get it free. I live within the Calgary city limits and don't like buying wood, so whenever I see some available for a guy willing to load it into his truck, I load up my share.

Sure beats buying it at Esso or wherever else.

Never bought a permit, I used to get wood in cut blocks, so much waste.

I have never bought a permit up until today.  My fault I really didn't even think of it I figured as long as I was cutting deadfall no big deal. Anyway I bought my permit today $.5.25 good for a month.

For myself it's not the fact it's 5 bucks,, it's the fact of why in the heck should I ?? Like really,, what's the idea behind it,, a guy doesn't pay enough we have to give them 5 bucks to cut some dead trees yet,, not this boy..

Hey I agree with you Walleyes I would prefer not to pay and when I go into the free zones I never have.  This trip the wife wants to be by a lake so we are at a Camp site and allot of people will see me coming back and forth with a couple truck loads of wood.  So for this trip I would just like to avoid any issue's coming up.

Just picked up and cut about a full cord this weekend.  Dead standing and back in the bush.  No permit....government doesn't need to control everything I do.
I think I see a rip in the social fabric, Brother can you spare some ammo?

Closest thing we have to a forest down here is carragana's my ancestors planted, haha.

So for our fireplace in winter I buy about a cord and a half of fir from the local fellow who brings in logs.  (ya, I know it's sad).  Just haven't had time to do any summer camping.  In hunt camp we burn very little wood, what we do burn is deadfall.
