Forest Service seeks comment on forest botanicals policy

February 2009
Asheville's Citizen-Times.Com
The U.S. Forest Service has extended the comment period for public input on the Sale and Disposal of Special Forest Products and Forest Botanical Products Final Rule. The comment period will now end March 2.

Detailed information and how to comment may be found on the web at http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2009/pdf/E9-1960.pdf.

The rule provides consistent national policy for gathering special forest products and forest botanical products on National Forest lands, such as galax and ginseng, and contains guidelines for setting permit prices. Currently special use permits are required for collection of forest products for commercial or personal use.
