The Wood for Life Tribal Fuelwood Initiative delivers small-diameter and low-value logs from fire mitigation projects, restoration efforts, and salvage sales on the San Juan NF to tribal communities on the Navajo Nation and Ute Mountain Ute Agency to be used as firewood.  In 2023, an estimated 3,600 cords of firewood were delivered to tribal partners and distributed through wood bank networks (up from 1,200 cords the prior year).  Several partners are involved in the coordination, processing, and delivery including the National Forest Foundation and Conservation Legacy (through Southwest Conservation Corps and Ancestral Lands Conservation Corps). The WFL program has been an effective tool for the agency, providing outlets for the byproducts (logs) from treatments designed to increase resiliency to detrimental disturbances such as wildfire or insect outbreak.
