Special Forest Products are forest resources not associated with timber sale contracts but are used for personal, commercial, and scientific purposes. Examples: cones, mushrooms, firewood, Christmas trees, wildflowers, nuts and berries.

To ensure a lasting supply, the US Forest and Bureau of Land Management are working together to create uniform harvesting regulations.

 

To do your part:

•  

Use products in a caring and ecologically sound way.

Follow the standards and guidelines available at local agency offices.

•  

Remember, harvesting rare, threatened, or endangered plants is ILLEGAL.
