Firewood Use in Idaho: Implications for Forest Management

Buy Article:


A survey shows that, demographically, firewood collectors on national forests in Idaho are fairly typical of Idahoans in general, if somewhat wealthier. The most important reason they collect firewood is to save money. However, the statewide average of 50.5 miles driven one way, each trip, to obtain an average of 5.9 cords of wood--and other collecting behaviors reported--challenges this motive. Contrary to many forest managers' belief that recreation is the primary motivation, respondents said recreation was the least important. Forest management decisions regarding permit fee structure, availability of wood, and collecting practices could have important consequences for collectors.
