The firewood program is intended to benefit all Prince of Wales residents. Free firewood is available on a "you-cut you-haul" basis. The program is not intended to support commercial firewood purposes. In Craig and Klawock, the wood will be resupplied when needed through out the winter, until the snow melts. Residents participating in the firewood program should bring their own tools such as a chainsaw.
Firewood is available at the following locations on Prince of Wales Island
The Cities of Craig and Klawock
opened their facilities to host the firewood pits for the program
according to Albert Kookesh, chair of Sealaska's board of Directors.
"Sealaska Corporation would like to publically thank Viking
Lumber for donating their trucking time and wood to the program
and the cities of Craig and Klawock for providing space for distributing
the firewood," said Kookesh. "Sealaska is committed
to continue to find ways to positively impact our tribal member
shareholders and the communities where we operate, especially
in these trying economic times."
