Click here to print this information
Zone V (5) on the Eagle Lake Ranger District of the Lassen National Forest will open for fuelwood cutting on June 16, 2017.
The Forest reminds drivers that road conditions remain saturated and soft in many areas, creating conditions where vehicles can easily become stuck.
Drivers who venture onto the National Forest are asked to exercise good judgement and caution when navigating on forest roads.
Fuelwood cutters are reminded to stay on roads and trails, as traveling cross-country with motor vehicles to scout for wood is prohibited.
Woodcutters are allowed to leave a Forest road to gather firewood with a valid wood permit, only if this activity does not harm natural resources.
Woodcutting is not allowed in timber sale areas or other commercial operations marked with No Woodcutting signs.
Trees marked with paint outside of posted areas and may not be cut or removed, including those on the ground, with the exception of downed lodgepole pine.
The price of personal wood permits remains $10.00 per cord, with a minimum purchase of two cords per permit.
Multiple permits may be purchased up to a 10-cord limit.
Personal use tags purchased on the Lassen National Forest are also valid on the Plumas National Forest and vice versa.
Permits may be purchased at the Eagle Lake Ranger District office, located at 477-050 Eagle Lake Road near the intersection of Highway 36 and County Road A-1, three miles west of Susanville.
Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Woodcutters should call the 24-hour number, (530) 257-4188, to find out if any current restrictions apply.
