Doncaster Demonstration Forest

Firewood Cutting

Firewood cutting is permitted on Doncaster Demonstration Forest with a permit. Permits are good for two cords of wood, and can be purchased for $20 per permit at the Forest Service field office in La Plata.

One cord is approximately two ¾-ton pick-up loads, three ½-ton pickup loads, or six ¼-ton pick-up loads.

Only dead trees laying on the ground and recent logging debris may be cut, and only two permits per family unit will be issued per year.

Wood is for personal use only and may not be used commercially.
