district. Permits are available now for the Central Coast Ranger District and the Hebo
Ranger District. Commercial and personal-use permits are required when harvesting
or transporting firewood. Personal-use permits are free and commercial-use permits
are $20 per cord; both will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Households
are limited to a maximum of six cords of free personal-use firewood per year. Permits
are not transferable. A valid government ID is required at the time of purchase.
Persons interested in a firewood permit are encouraged to visit the cutting areas
