Firewood Permits Available In Reedsport/Waldport


Firewood permits are available for purchase at Siuslaw National Forest offices. Permits are required regardless if the firewood is for personal use or to be sold commercially. Firewood cutting season usually runs from October through the end of February, although cutting and removing firewood outside that timeframe may be authorized on a case-by-case basis.
 
Personal use permits are on sale at the Reedsport and Waldport district offices, as well as the supervisor’s office in Corvallis. Those interested in purchasing a commercial permit must contact the district office (541-563-8400) to learn how to submit an advance permit request in writing. Individuals may purchase a commercial permit for up to a maximum of 15 cords. The cost for commercial permits is $20/cord with a six cord minimum and 15 cord maximum, with 30 days to harvest the wood.
 
When collecting firewood, harvesters are reminded to:
 
· Adhere to provisions listed on their permit
· Clean up cutting area, scattering or removing debris from wood cutting
· Keep firewood lengths to 6 feet or less when transporting
· Accurately record quantities cut on their removal cards
 
No power equipment can be used when gathering free-use firewood. Failure to comply with provisions on any firewood permit may result in fines up to $5,000, forfeiture of the permit or both. For more information, call 541-271-6000. More information is available online at http://go.usa.gov/xKtKc.
