Ever eat a pine nut?

The Bureau of Land Management is predicting a pine nut crop better than last year. Individuals and families can harvest up to 25 pounds of nuts per family for free. More than 25 pounds requires a permit, and all commercial collectors must have permits.The BLM is also offering permits to harvest wood on public lands in the Beaver River Resource Area for cedar posts, Christmas trees and firewood.
