Current Activity Levels and Restrictions

Fuelwood Cutters and Service Contracts use the Project Activity Level System (PAL)

  • For Fuelwood Cutters ONLY - information about what the ratings mean.
  • Timber Sale Contracts will use the Activity Level System specified in individual contracts. This is either Sale Activity Level (SAL) or Project Activity Level (PAL). Contractors must follow their contract specified Activity Level requirements.

During the winter and spring months, the Sale Activity Level (SAL) will be "1" and the Project Activity Level (PAL) will be "A." This may change if there is a significant warming trend. We will start updating Activity Levels on a daily basis about May of 2017.
