Timber available with woodcutting permit

Two hotshot fire crews were in Cordova from April 22-27 for training and recertification. They felled several dozen trees in the Mile 12 state woodcutting area. That timber is now available to the public for home use to anyone who obtains the required woodcutting permits, which are available online at a minimal cost at http://forestry.alaska.gov/wood/firewood. Participants from the Chena Hotshots and Midnight Sun National Hotshot crews included, from left: Mike Henderson, Pennsylvania; Nick Krohe, Alaska; Joe Erickson, Minnesota; Janson Marshall, Oregon; Ryan Corby, Minnesota; JD Bowman, Utah; Nolan Riley, Idaho; Sam Bratten, Alaska; and Mike Riker, Minnesota.
