Forest Products Permits

Where can I get a permit for Forest Products?

Examples of Forest Products are firewood, and ornamental rocks. Urbanized areas are less likely to provide forest product permits. However, once away from urban areas, Ranger Districts are more likely to offer permits, but in very limited numbers. For more specific information, contact your local Ranger District. The District Ranger usually decides the number of permits available at a local level.
