§9602. Obstruction of discontinued woods roads prohibited

No person, unless authorized by the director, shall obstruct any improved woods road or way used for the removal of forest growth, upon the discontinuance from use or abandonment of the same, if it may be reasonably utilized for preventing or suppressing forest fires. This provision shall not prohibit a landowner from his right to close or cause to be closed such woods roads or ways by chains or gates. [1979, c. 545, §3 (NEW).]
