Wood-cutting permits extended

Drier-than-usual fall weather means area residents can continue to cut wood in Tahoe National Forest later into the season.

While the normal deadline for wood-cutting permits comes over the holiday weekend, those interested can contact the local ranger district to see if the program is still open or closed from rain or snow.

According to a Forest Service release, permits will be issued until Wednesday at the Sierraville and Truckee ranger stations, potentially longer in Truckee.

In the release, Truckee District Ranger Joanne Roubique said demand for permits to cut wood in the national forests has been high this year. So, rather than setting a final date, the district will allow people to apply for permits on a case-by-case basis until the weather turns and Forest Service roads become impassable.

Contact the Truckee Ranger District for general information at 587-3558, or call the wood-cutting Code-A-Phone at 587-2158.
