program on the Forest.


When issuing permits, only two fo
rms of identification are valid:

license or State ID,
and
either must have a picture. A person may purchase a permit for their
spouse. A designated cutter may be named on the permit.


Incidental amounts of dead and down fue
lwood for recreationists do not require a permit.

This
fuelwood is intended for on
-
site use and is not to be removed from Forest Service land

without a
permit
.



Personal use fuelwood is intended to be used by the permittee or the immediate family.
Indiv
iduals may purchase up to 4 cords for personal use. Personal use fuelwood may not be
resold.

Each
D
istrict has the option to designate
D
istrict fuelwood
c
utting areas (dead and down, dead standing, green and free use) and
D
istrict fuelwood seasons,
where it benefits the public and meets resource objectives of the
D
istrict. These
D
istrict
fuelwood permits should be restricted to designated areas.
Maps are
to be provided with detailed
boundaries for property lines and collection unit boundaries with these permits.

Load tags will
be issued for all wood permits and the permits will be
prominently

attached to each load of wood
so that they are clearly visible
while transporting the wood.

Districts have the discretion to increase minimum prices to meet market conditions. The
minimum permit value for fuelwood, convertible product, and non
-
convertible product sales will
be $20.00.
The minimum value of
one

CCF or

one cord of dead and down, dead standing, or
green fuelwood is $5.00/CCF or cord.

authority for personal use fuel
wood whenever that authority is used.

e
-

four (4) cords per
year to an individual.

4. Free
-

use without being squared by hewing or sawing)
whenever that authority is used.
Value of
Free
-
Use for roundwood may not exceed $20
0
/year to an individual.

Use
the
standard rates
of $1.00/ccf or cord
for

to determine value
.

5. Commercial
Fuelwood Sales.

Commercial sales are for those persons who will resell
the fuelwood, or use their wood at a commercial enterprise. All commercial sale
s of 100 CCF or
cords or more
where the demand for commercial sales is high and competition may be prese
nt,
should be advertised for competitive bidding. If no bids are received, sales may be sold on a
negotiated basis.

The minimum commercial sale will be $2
0
.00.

6. Policy in Unadvertised and Short
