Forest Products for Incidental Use

For minor amounts of forest products that are for one’s direct personal use, a permit may not be required. The incidental use guide (PDF 1,205 KB) lists the products and the amounts that may be harvested under the incidental use rules. Following these rules, a permit is not required and there is no cost for collecting the items. Materials gathered under incidental use must be for your own personal use and cannot be sold or exchanged in any form, nor be used for making something for sale.
