Sierra National Forest to resume selling wood-cutting permits

The Sierra National Forest will resume selling wood-cutting permits on April 1, the forest said.

The permits will be for April 1 to Nov. 30 and will be $5 per cord, with a minimum charge of $20 allowing the removal of four cords of firewood. Each person can gather a maximum of 12 cords per year.

Permits will be sold at the North Fork, Prather and Clovis Forest Service offices, and are not valid for private property.

Anyone removing forest firewood must have a permit and load receipts must be attached to the load before leaving the wood-cutting site.
