Firewood cutting is permitted on St. Inigoes State 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. Wood is for personal use only and may not be used commercially.
