Inyo National Forest

The Inyo National Forest announces that the request to purchase personal use fuelwood permits must be submitted by November 15th, 2021.

The fuelwood season has been extended throughout November 30, 2021 weather conditions permitting. Since it can take about two weeks to receive them via the mail, the November 15th date allows fuelwood collectors adequate time to receive permits before the end on the fuelwood season.

People seeking fuelwood permits are encouraged to do so as soon as possible.

Fuelwood permits may be obtained by email and through the mail:

Send an email: [email protected]

Mail-in requests: Inyo National Forest Attn: fuelwood permit, 351 Pacu Lane Suite 200 Bishop, CA 93514.

 Each request should include your name, physical address, mailing address, phone number, driver’s license number and number of cords requested. Permits will be returned to requesters by hardcopy mail.

 Permits requests must be received by close of business of November 15th.

Fuelwood permits previously obtained for this year that haven’t been used are still valid or residents may purchase additional tags (as long as they don’t exceed the household limit).

Fuelwood collection typically ends at the end of October to reduce resource damage that can occur from wet conditions caused by typical season ending storms. Due to unseasonably warm and dry conditions, the forest is extending fuelwood collection. However, the fuelwood season will be suspended when and if it is warranted for resource protection, so fuelwood collectors should track weather trends and plan accordingly.

Please call 760-873-2555 (option 2 for public wood cutting) to determine if chainsaw use is allowed for the day.

Good Lord,NOW you’re complaining about firewood permit conditions..
Give it a rest,dude…
Let me guess.. you feel it’s yours and others “freedom” to go into the forest,when and where you want,as often as you want,and cut as much firewood you need or want to sell to others…..that about it ?

Nothing wrong with that. There is no need to regulate the collection of fallen trees and logs, in any way, at all, for any purpose. The idea that it is regulated is preposterous.

Yeah,right…
If the USFS opened the wilderness to unlimited firewood- cut and wood collection to anyone,anytime and anywhere,how many would abide by the rules that were in place ?
Not to mention,the oddles of people that would be coming up here from out of County to cut,collect and sell the wood to their friends and others..
AND…the crowds and fire danger that would come along with that too…
Lots of negatives if you really think much about it…
