Firewood

Cutting firewood for personal use is a popular past-time for a lot of people who live near the Six Rivers National Forest. Each year, hundreds of people go to the woods to stock up on a winter supply of firewood, lots of times thinking about how pleasant it will be to sit in front of a warm fire on a cold winter night. There is something very satisfying about a nicely cut, split, and stacked wood pile.

Before you head out with your chainsaw, there are a few things you should know about cutting firewood on the national forest.
