Plumas National Forest makes green firewood permits available

Feather Publishing

Additional green firewood permits are available for personal firewood cutting in the vicinity of Snake Lake near Quincy, according to local Forest Service officials. Special green, project-specific fuelwood permits are required, priced at $10/cord with a two-cord minimum.


“The first phase of the program was a success,” said Andy Hart, small sales forester for the Mt. Hough Ranger District of the Plumas National Forest. “Wood cutters did a good job of removing their wood and piling their debris.”
The trees are a mix of white fir, pine and cedar averaging 8 inches in diameter, and, if split, would be dry in time for next winter’s heating needs.
Woodcutters may only cut marked trees and must pile the needles and small limbs left behind. Cutters may not leave the road to scout for trees but may do so to pick up their cut firewood, provided there is no resource damage to the soil and surrounding vegetation.
The green firewood cutting area is along Snake Lake Road (National Forest System Road 24N27 and Plumas County Road 435) within T24N/T25N R 9E, Section 6.
Special green firewood permits and a cutting area map are available at the Mt. Hough Ranger District Office 39696 Highway 70, Quincy, CA, 283-0555, and on Thursdays and Fridays at the Greenville Work Center, 122 Hot Springs Road, Greenville, CA, 284-7126.

How come the USFS - PNF doesn't issue Free Use Permits? The citizens are providing the labor to clean-up the downed wood, but the USFS still charges for permits. This should fall under a Free Use Permit.

Community organizers should be demanding that the USFS issue Free Use Permits.

Roger, at least get it right. In this case they are getting you to thin their green trees for them that are too thick.
