    agree. These are suppose to be our lands. In this time of folks out of work, and just don't have that extra money. This is what the Forest service does. They continue to mismanage OUR forest. There are millions of tons of dead wood out there that are a fire danger today, Yet instead of allowing folks to get as much as they can, They chargr folks for OUR WOOD. What a joke this bunch is.
