This year, personal firewood permits are free for up to eight cords of wood in the Ochocos and CRNG

Personal and commercial use firewood collection season has resumed on the Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests and Crooked River National Grassland. All areas will remain open through Nov. 30. The public should note this is only for the national forest lands and does not include permits for firewood cutting on BLM administered lands.

Personal firewood permits are available at local vendors and open Forest Service offices. Permit holders must have a permit and a copy of the Firewood Synopsis while collecting firewood and will be required to tag their loads. Permit holders need to pay particular attention to the "Rules and Regulations" as well as the specific cutting designations listed on each cutting area map in the synopsis. It is the responsibility of the permit holder to read the Firewood Synopsis and understand the tree species available for firewood cutting and gathering in the designated areas. It is prohibited to possess or remove trees that have been illegally cut.

This year personal firewood permits are free for up to eight cords of wood. This firewood cannot be sold and must only be used for personal use. People interested in selling firewood must obtain a commercial permit.
