FIREWOOD : All firewood cutting on SDS / BLC requires a valid permit. Permits ARE NOT available at this time but may be available Spring of 2018. Permits will ONLY be sold to the public at DJ’s rentals in Bingen, WA. http://djsmountainmotorsports.com/
A new Permit System was initiated in 2013. Example of the new Firewood Permit:
Major changes for 2013 include:
- Permits will be printed on a placard and must be displayed on the front dash or windshield when cutting or transporting firewood.
- 8 Wood tags with unique ID numbers will be issued with each permit. Every 1/2 cord of wood must have a wood tag with the date of transfer, permit holder and the Harvest Unit filled in completely and be visibly fixed to the upper rear portion of the load during transport.
- No firearms are allowed on persons or in vehicles during the course of wood cutting operations. This rule is designed to reduce potential conflicts with other users (ie; accidentally shooting at another recreationist or woodcutter), and to ensure compliance with the SLC rules regarding hunting access on closed roads.
- Emphasis on enforcement of the ‘Non-Commercial’ clause. Regular Firewood permits are available ONLY for residential home use, not for Commercial resale. If a Commercial wood cutter approaches SLC with a proposal for firewood removal for resale, a separate cutting area and Contract may be designated for that project.
