CARSON CITY — The Carson Ranger District, Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, will start selling personal use firewood cutting permits for dead trees on Wednesday. Dead-tree firewood cutting areas include the Dog Valley area near Verdi; the Leviathan area between Monitor Pass and Highway 395 in California; and, the Hope Valley area, south of Woodfords, Calif.

Specified live-tree cutting areas will open on July 15, and will include the Peavine, Atoma and Scotts Lake cutting areas. The dead-tree woodcutting permit will be valid in the live-tree cutting areas on July 15, but will require a permittee to obtain live- tree cutting area maps.

Firewood permits are valid through Nov. 16 and cost $15 per cord with a two-cord minimum. There is a six-cord maximum per household annually. A fire extinguisher and a shovel are required when using a chainsaw for cutting firewood.

Permits may be purchased at the Galena Creek Visitor Center, 16750 Mt. Rose Highway in Reno. The center is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. For more information, call 849-4948.
