Default Removing fallen trees from public lands?

Is it legal to remove fallen trees from public lands to use as firewood?

There are a lot of different types of public lands, under the jurisdiction of a lot of different agencies. On most districts of Forest Service lands, you can get a down-and-dead firewood permit. On other types, I have no idea.

the local USFS' s permit is worded different here than others !! Our permit reads..dead and/or down !! meaning..here you can cut a dead tree down even if it is still standing. No permits needed here if it is for campwood.

The USFS permit is now $30 I think. And you have to fill it out in person. Why go through all the trouble when you could buy a truckload of firewood and have it split and delivered to you for $50. If you are like me and enjoy getting your own wood, drive around north Ga and you’ll find plenty of people with downed trees in their yards or pastures from Irma. They probably pay you to cut up tree and haul off.

It's about $20 here, and you can cut a few cords of wood.

The National Forest here around our area anything you remove without a permit is considered theft. If they catch you hauling anything out of there without a permit they will prosecute you..
