Additionally, the Salmon-Challis National Forest is exploring options of adding additional vendors in the Challis area as well as providing sales of Salmon-Challis Personal Use Fuelwood Permits on neighboring Forests. “We recognize the impact this change is going to have on our customers,” said Chuck Mark, Forest Supervisor, “We want to make the transition as smooth as possible.”
Woodcutters on the Salmon-Challis National Forest can take up to 12 cords of personal use fuelwood under their permits. Permits are valid from January 1 until December 31 of the year purchased. The permits cost $5.00 per cord and there is a $20 or four cord minimum purchase. A cord is the amount of tightly piled wood in a stack four feet high by four feet wide by eight feet long.
