Fuelwood Update

Mendocino National Forest is waiving the need for personal use firewood permits until September 30, 2020. If you were unable to purchase a permit prior to our offices closing, you may go and cut what you need for your family during this difficult time. All firewood cutting rules remain in place.

Woodcutting requirements may vary substantially so please check with the Forest Supervisor's office at (530) 934-3316 to see if there are any specific local restrictions or requirements.
