Post and Pole Permits

Many people call about getting teepee poles, fence rails and miscellaneous small wood from the forest. These are classified as small timber sales and require a permit from the District's small sale administrator.

Rocks

Collecting rocks, say for backyard landscaping, requires a permit. Please contact us for more information. If you are interested in rockhounding, visit the Rocks & Minerals page of our Recreation section.
