USFS firewood, mushroom permits available

Personal Use Firewood Cutting Permits and Personal Use Mushroom Permits are now available from Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests offices. Permits are valid for the year April 1, 2018 through March 31, 2019.

Personal Use Firewood Cutting Permits allow permit holders to harvest dead trees and down logs on National Forests in USDA Forest Service Region 1, as well as on Bureau of Land Management public lands. Firewood permits cost $5 a cord, with a four cord minimum ($20). A permit can be purchased for a maximum of 12 cords ($60).

Remember to keep your permit with you at all times when harvesting and transporting firewood. Permits aren’t necessary for small amounts of campfire kindling. Firewood taken from National Forests is for personal use only and cannot be sold.
