Recreation Passes & Permits
In Washington and Oregon some national forest recreation sites require a day use fee. This section includes information about where fees are charged and which passes may be used to cover these fees.
Special Forest Products
Special Forest Products are forest resources not associated with timber sale contracts but are used for personal, commercial, and scientific purposes. Examples are firewood, mushrooms, moss, transplants, Christmas trees, cones, and boughs. This permit is required whenever you plan to sell forest products. Also, some products are rare enough or in high enough demand that they also require a permit.
If you are unsure whether you need a special forest products permit, please contact us.
Special Use Permits
A special use permit is required when you are asking for special privileges on National Forest land. Examples include gatherings of 75 people or more, operating a business, using the forest for financial gain, and commercial filming.

Road Use Permits
Using a National Forest System Road (NFSR) for commercial hauling requires a permit or written authorization.
