RHINELANDER, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin's only national forest is open for business now that the federal government shutdown is over. 

Workers at the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest have spent the last five days re-opening recreational areas. They've also been reinstating timber contracts in the vast forest which covers 1.5 million acres in northern Wisconsin.  

Permits for bough and firewood are being issued again. 

Recreational facilities are being re-opened after employees make sure they're clean and safe.
