Start Collecting Wood

Sonora, CA — Beginning next month residents will be able to cut and collect wood once again in the Stanislaus National Forest.

Personal Use Fuelwood Season will start on April 1st and continue through November 30.

Forest Service Spokesperson Pat Kaunert says that some Forest roads have not yet opened for vehicle travel due to current weather and road conditions. Those will remain temporarily closed until drier conditions render them passable without causing damage to resources.

Early season wood cutters are reminded to contact their local Ranger Station to find out about wood cutting regulations, current road conditions and which roads are open and dry enough for travel.

The Forest Service is charging $25 for a two and a half cord purchase. Permits are required.
