Forest Products Permits

A forest produces a variety of products which people can harvest, collect, and use.  Depending on the forest product, either commercial use, non-commercial use, or both, may require a permit.  You may want to call a Forest Service office for specific information about the forest product in which you are interested.  Some general guidelines are as follows:

  • Plant collection permits are required for digging plants
  • Permits are required for collecting edible material, decorative material, etc if used for commercial purposes
  • Mineral collection requires a permit  
  • Permits for Holiday Trees and Greens are available
  • Firewood permits are required
