Wood cutting resumes

After months of fire restrictions due to the extreme fire danger this summer, firewood cutting resumes on the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest until Nov. 30.

Personal and commercial use firewood permits are available at all ranger district offices  and at select local vendors. 

Personal use permits can be purchased for $5 per cord, with a four cord minimum and a ten cord maximum. Personal use firewood permits sold so far this year total 6,912 cords at the forest offices and 1,403 cords have been sold by private vendors, totaling 8,315 cords sold for personal use on the forest.

Commercial use permits are available for $10 per cord, with a two cord minimum. There is no limit that an individual can purchase. Commercial permits sold so far this year total 927 cords.

 Commercial use permit users need to ensure that wood cutting does not conflict with  active timber sales; therefore forest officers need to be present when issuing commercial use permits. 

The regulations, process and cost per cord hasn’t changed since 1995 on the forest.

Forest Supervisor Kevin Martin said, “Our district rangers at each district determine the process they are going to use for issuing both personal and commercial use permits. They understand the importance of firewood gathering in this area and are very accommodating to ensure the public can obtain permits to get their firewood.”

Firewood cutting ceases Nov. 30 because of resource impacts and concerns. However, depending on weather and on-the-ground conditions, the forest supervisor has the authority to open roads for woodcutting purposes beyond Nov. 30 on a case-by-case basis. 

Additional information about firewood cutting and fire restrictions is available by calling local Ranger District offices and on the web at http://www.fs.usda.gov/wallowa-whitman.
