Copper Haul Road Update
Whitehorse – Firewood is now available for public pick-up along the Copper Haul Road.
Wood has been piled near the Mt. Sima Road and Copper Haul Road intersection, as identified on the map below. Please use caution while collecting wood along the road edge.
A section of the Copper Haul Road near Fish Lake Road is closed for the repair of a collapsed culvert, as identified on the bottom map.
Remember that green firewood should be seasoned for 3-12 months or have less than 15% moisture content for clean, efficient burning. Burning high moisture wood results in wood smoke that can negatively affect human health.
