New Forestry dataset in CSW: Personal Use Fuelwood Areas - 50k

July 12, 2018

This feature class identifies active areas designated for personal use woodcutting where harvesting dead or downed fuelwood can occur for purposes such as home heating. Certain areas have seasonal restrictions or additional terms and conditions. A forest resources permit is required to cut in these areas; this free permit authorizes a limit of 25m3(11 cords) of firewood. Failure to have a permit or carry it with you when cutting could result in enforcement action.
