  • Firewood and Mushroom Permits

    Personal use firewood permits and personal use mushroom permits are available at Forest Service offices on the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests and at several local vendors. Annual permits are valid from April 1 through March 31.

    Personal use firewood permits allow permit holders to harvest dead trees and downed logs on National Forests and Bureau of Land Management public lands within USDA Forest Service Region 1. Firewood permits cost $5 a cord, with a four cord minimum ($20). A permit can be purchased for a maximum of 12 cords ($60). Remember to keep your permit with you at all times when harvesting and transporting firewood. Permits aren’t necessary for small amounts of campfire kindling. Firewood taken from National Forests is for personal use only and cannot be sold.

    Personal use mushroom permits are free of charge and authorize individuals to harvest up to five gallons of mushrooms per day and up to 20 gallons of mushrooms throughout the season on the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests. Mushrooms harvested for personal use must be sliced in half at the time of harvest. No commercial mushroom harvest is authorized on the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests this season.

    Brochures with more information about both permits are available online and at forest offices.
