Special Forest Products
Special Forest Products is a term used to describe vegetative material found on public lands that can be harvested for recreation, personal use, or as a source of income. Permits are issued on Wednesdays from 8:00am–11:00am and 12:30pm–3:00pm. Several products are available for collection on either a personal or commercial use basis through the Eugene District BLM office. Permits are at least a $10 minimum, unless free use collection is allowed. Please bring a valid government issued ID and description of vehicle, including license plate number. Below is a partial list of products available, but please contact the Eugene District office at 541-683-6600 or BLM_OR_EU_Mail@blm.gov for details on availability and current cost of any specific products.
Cost is $11 / cord. You can add your name to the firewood waiting list between October 1 and October 31 every year by calling 541-683-6978. Permits are then issued throughout the year when cutting areas become available.
Other than the waiting list, if you find any downed trees alongside a road on BLM land that you would like to cut for firewood, call the front desk at 541-683-6600 with road number and description of the location. After a forester does an inspection of the area, we'll let you know if it qualifies for a permit.
