If you have a property that doesnt have enough
firewood on it, and you want to harvest some of your own,
go to the National Forest Service Offices in Coeurdalene
or Sandpoint, and get a firewood cutting permit. They charge
$5.00 per cord, youhave to cut either deadfall or standing
dead trees (no live ones) & you have to buy a minimum
of 4 cords ($20.00) & take a maximum of 12 cords per
year, & I dont know many people who would use
more than that.
YOUR FIREWOOD PERMIT
To cut firewood for personal use on National Forest lands
in Idaho, you must have a Personal Use Firewood Permit.
At $5.00 per cord, you can purchase a permit for no less
than four cords ($20) and no more than twelve ($60). A
permit is good for gathering firewood from the time of
purchase through March 31. You are only allowed to haul
firewood up to 6 feet in length. Anything longer must
be approved in writing by the Forest Service. Permits
are available at Forest Service offices.
