Plumas National Forest firewood cutting policy changes

Feather Publishing
6/22/2013
 

The Plumas National Forest has modified its firewood cutting policy to include:

—Allowing permittees actively engaged in loading cut firewood to drive 100 feet off a national forest system road or trail designated for wheeled motor vehicle use as long as natural resource damage does not occur. This condition will be honored for 2013 permits purchased prior to the policy change.

—Increasing the maximum length restriction for cut firewood from 6 feet to 9.9 feet. This condition will be honored for 2013 permits purchased prior to the policy change.

—Increasing the maximum number of cords sold under a personal use firewood permit from 10 to 12 cords per year. This condition will be honored for 2013 permits purchased prior to the policy change.

—Increasing the minimum number of cords sold under a commercial permit from two to four cords per permit.

Additional permit conditions include:

—Standing dead trees in which wildlife are actively nesting, denning or roosting may not be cut.

—Driving is not allowed on roads or off road during wet soil conditions, across flowing or dry stream channels or meadows, or on soft or steep slopes when rutting, unreasonable soil movement or damage would occur.

—Cutting firewood within historic or prehistoric cultural sites or within posted control areas is not allowed.

Generally, the Plumas National Forest firewood cutting policy allows the cutting and removal of dead trees within 100 feet of a Plumas National Forest system road with a firewood permit.

The Plumas National Forest has a longstanding policy of allowing personal and commercial use firewood cutting and gathering from national forest lands. PNF periodically reviews this policy to balance changes in natural resource conditions while serving community needs.

For a more information regarding the PNF firewood cutting policy, visit a PNF ranger district office or go to fs.usda.gov/plumas.
