Lassen National Forest to Offer Free Fuelwood Tags
Beginning January 1, 2022
SUSANVILLE, Calif., December 17, 2021 – As the impacts from COVID-19 continue to be felt across the
country, we remain committed to providing services on our public lands and doing what we can to help those in
need. As such, the Lassen National Forest will provide free personal use firewood permits through April 30,
2022.
“We understand that access to fuelwood is essential to the people in our communities. In order
to serve our community more efficiently we are making free fuelwood permits available
beginning January 1 to April 30, 2022,” said Deb Bumpus, Forest Supervisor, LNF.
Effective January 1, 2022, you will be able to obtain free fuelwood permits. All fuelwood regulations will still
be required to follow which includes calling the phone number for daily updates and paying attention to the
closure areas. The free fuelwood permits will only be valid and usable from January 1 to April 30, 2022. Please
request your free personal use permit by completing and signing the mail-in form available on our website at
https://www.fs.usda.gov/lassen. Send your form to one of the offices listed below and we will mail your free
firewood permit(s) and regulations.
These permits are only valid on Lassen National Forest lands open to firewood cutting. You can obtain permits
for up to six cords of firewood for personal use. A cord is the amount of tightly piled wood in a stack four feet
high by four feet wide by eight feet long. Due to our employees having only limit access to our offices at this
time, it may take up to one week to obtain a permit. Please plan accordingly. Commercial fuelwood is not part
of the program, and commercial permits must be purchased.
