How do i Acquire a Firewood Cutting Permit for State Trust Lands?
We provide opportunities for the public to cut firewood in approved areas on state trust lands. Suitable downed wood for firewood is located at timber harvest sites. Purchasers of trust lands timber sales use more of the branches left after trees are harvested, so opportunities for personal firewood cutting are limited.
Also, in addition to revenue production we manage for habitat, and snags, downed wood and stumps are important habitat components under our State Trust Lands Habitat Conservation Plan, so please follow your permit as to where and what to cut.
- Olympic and Northwest Regions display cutting areas and permits below on this page.
- For wood cutting opportunities in other regions, see instructions below, or contact the appropriate region office for instructions.
- Each DNR region provides specific information and serves as your point of contact.
- Locate on the map the region in which you would like to cut firewood.
- See contact information below map to get firewood cutting permit.
- Foresters mark the area appropriate for cutting your firewood. Please follow instructions and stay in the specified area.
NOTE - Access may not be available due to snow or storm damage; watch for road closure signs.
