Mt. Hood National Forest offers free firewood cutting
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 fs.usda.gov/goto/mthood/firewood, 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.
