Free Personal Use Firewood From North Idaho National Forests Extended For Rest Of The Year

Free cutting of personal firewood from local National Forests in Idaho has been extended through the rest of the year.

Permits for personal firewood from the U.S. Forest Service in North Idaho will be available at no charge for the rest of 2020.  The agency had previously announced that free woodcutting would end in June.

Starting on Monday woodcutters will need to obtain a free hard-copy permit from the Forest Service so the agency can track harvesting.  Woodcutters are asked to contact their local Forest Service office for a free hard-copy permit.

Permit holders can cut up to 12 cords of personal firewood.
