    On August 19, 2013, Jeffco Open Space will begin to sell Fuel Wood Permits for logs from forest management activities at White Ranch Park.

    The Open Space Fuel Wood program provides low-cost wood to our community while assisting in the forest management of our parks. The logs are in large piles next to service roads within the parks. Permits will be available at the Jeffco Open Space offices, 700 Jefferson County Parkway, Suite 100, Golden, CO during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

    Cost

    $25 for a standard pickup truck or trailer 6 to 8 feet in length (trailer length limited due to narrow roads and limited turning radius)

    $20 for compact trucks

    Payment accepted by personal check or cash. No credit cards. Checks must be made payable to Jefferson County Treasurer.

    Fuel Wood Sale Tips

    Four-wheel drive vehicles are required for wood pickup at White Ranch Park.

    Unredeemed permits will not be refunded.

    Limit four (4) permits to a customer.

    Permits cover a two hour window for pickup on weekend days (8 to 10 a.m., 10 to noon, noon to 2 p.m., 2 to 4 p.m.)

    Entry to the pickup sites will close daily at 3 p.m.

    Permit holders must provide their own chainsaws to cut the logs into fuel wood lengths.
