Type of Request: Extension with no revision of a currently approved collection. Abstract: Under 16 U.S.C. 551, individuals planning to remove forest products from the National Forests must obtain a permit. To obtain a permit, applicants must meet the criteria at 36 CFR 223.1, 223.2, and 223.5–223.13, which authorizes free use or sale of timber or forest products. Upon receiving a permit, the permittee must comply with the terms of the permit (36 CFR 261.6), which designates forest products that can be harvested and under what conditions, such as limiting harvest to a designated area or permitting harvest of only specifically designated material. The collected information will help the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management (for form FS–2400–1) oversee the approval and use of forest products by the public. When applying for forest product removal permits, applicants (depending on the products) must complete one of the following: • FS–2400–1, Forest Products Removal Permit and Cash Receipt, is used to sell timber or forest products such as fuelwood, Christmas trees, or pine cones (36 CFR 223.1, 223.2). The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Forest Service share this form, which the Bureau of Land Management identifies as BLM–5450–24 (43 U.S.C. 1201, 43 CFR 5420). • FS–2400–4, Forest Products Contract and Cash Receipt, is used to sell timber products such as sawtimber or forest products such as fuelwood. • FS–2400–8, Forest Products Free Use Permit, allows use of timber or forest products at no charge to the permittee (36 CFR 223.5–223.13). Each form listed above implements different regulations and has different provisions for compliance, but collects E:\FR\FM\16AUN1.SGM 16AUN1
