Caribou-Targhee National Forest is now selling firewood permits for personal use.

Purchasing a firewood permit includes the permit, the tags, a ranger district firewood map to help find appropriate firewood and a Targhee terms and conditions handout.

A firewood permit allows the buyer to harvest firewood in the Targhee National Forest. Only standing or down wood can be harvested with these permits. The Targhee Forest encourages visitors to obtain permits and only buy locally sourced wood to prevent invasive species from spreading.

Permits are sold at a minimum of $25. A cord of firewood is also available for purchase for $6.25, with a minimum purchase of four cords. Added-on cords can be bought for $6.25, with a maximum of eight cords per family. 

The tags provided at purchase must be in possession while collecting and transporting firewood. Permits are valid until Nov. 30, 2023. 

Not all areas of the forest allow firewood cutting, and some areas of the forest are privately owned. The map provided at purchase will show where firewood harvesting is not permitted.

Permits can be bought at district ranger offices and local participating vendors. Contact information for ranger offices, participating vendors and more information can be found on the Caribou-Targhee National Forest’s website.
