Forest Products Overview

To enhance public employee safety during COVID-19 pandemic, we will offer two different methods for obtaining firewood and other forest product permits.  Local ranger district offices will sell permits over the phone and through the mail.  These options are available using a credit or debit card, check, or money order.  Cash payments are not available for phone or mail-in options.  When paying with a debit or credit card the permit will be mailed to you the following business day.  Please plan ahead, allowing time to receive your permit by mail prior to collecting forest products. Other options may be available such as curbside pickup at some Ranger District Offices, so please call ahead.
