(UNDATED) - Indiana has more than doubled the price of firewood permits that allow the public to cut their own firewood in designated areas of state forests.

Those permits had cost $3, but the price rose to $10 on July 1.

The Department of Natural Resources says the $7 increase is the first firewood permit fee hike in more than 30 years.

The permits allow holders to cut enough wood to fill the bed of a pickup truck.

Assistant state forester Dan Ernst says state forests "have a long tradition of offering economical firewood opportunities for home heating."

People holders can cut fallen hardwood trees in areas of state forests where managed timber harvests have been completed.
