Use of chainsaw in National Forrest?

Just curious, if I happen to be on an open trail in the National Forrest and I happen to come across a down tree across the road, does anyone know if I will get in some kind of trouble for cutting it down and moving it out of the way?

I there a permit I have to get or something?

Thanks for the input

You likely would need to get a wood cutting permit and it also has to be a cutting day.

Call a ranger station and ask is your best bet. It might not be legal but I can't see anyone hassling you for clearing a roadway.

According to our local DNR Officer; You can cut and move the tree from blocking the trail/road. You can not cut it into fire wood and haul it out. You need a permit for that.

In other words, just cut it as minimal as you can to safely move it to the side of the trail/road. I recommend you carry plenty of safety gear as a accident in the woods, even minor can result in death by the time someone gets to you.
