Collecting products on National Forest System lands for commercial and private use requires a Forest Product Permit. Commonly requested permits are for fuelwood, Christmas Trees and mushrooms.
Campfire Permits are required for the use of campfires, charcoal fires or portable gas stoves outside a designated recreation sites. These are free and are available at all Forest Service, BLM, or CAL FIRE offices, or online at www.PreventWildfireCA.org. Check for fire restrictions before you go.
A special-use authorization is a legal document such as a permit, term permit, lease, or easement, which allows occupancy, use, rights, or privileges on the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. The authorization is granted for a specific use of the land for a specific period of time.
The Shasta-Trinity National Forest is home to five different wilderness areas. Two of these require wilderness permits and all of them require a California Campfire Permit for use of stoves. Campfires are only allowed in some areas and campfire restrictions may be in place during summer/fall months in all areas.
