Firewood Access

Firewood is made available exclusively to owners in Lake Taupō forest at the firewood yard off Kiko Road in Lake Taupō Forest.  

Short logs are provided at the yards, and require chain-sawing and splitting.

To ensure access remains exclusive to owners, forest access permits are required to cut and take firewood.  Permits must be shown on request.

When cutting firewood with a chainsaw the appropriate safety equipment must be used; safety helmet, hearing and eye protection, safety footwear, safety trousers and chainsaw mitt and chain break.
