Those heading to the forest must carry a copy of the firewood information sheet and cutting area map

COURTESY PHOTO - Leaders on the Mt. Hood National Forest have anounced that firewood cutting will be free throigh the start of June.

Those who wish to acquire firewood from the Mt. Hood National Forest can do so at no cost for the next few months.

Forest leaders announced that permits will not be required for personal-use firewood cutting through Monday, June 1, although woodcutters must carry a paper or digital copy of the firewood information sheet and firewood cutting area map. Both documents are available at, as well as informational kiosks at the Zigzag Ranger Station, Hood River Ranger Station and Barlow Ranger Station.

Community members can take up to six cords of firewood for personal use each year. Personal-use firewood cutting allows the removal of downed timber in designated areas. Firewood cutting is prohibited in wilderness areas and recreation sites.
