Plumas NF Christmas tree permits available

Plumas National Forest Christmas tree cutting permits-by-mail are available now and walk-in permits may be purchased at ranger district offices beginning Nov. 1.

Walk-in permits are available through Tuesday, Dec. 24, while permits-by-mail must be received by Monday, Dec. 2, to ensure timely delivery. Trees may be cut through the end of December. Permits are $10 and include a map of tree cutting areas, as well as safety information and helpful tips. Two permits are allowed per household; please read the instructions on your permit carefully! There are no refunds.

Forest Service offices are open on Friday, Nov. 29 (the day after Thanksgiving), Saturday Nov. 30, Saturday Dec. 7 and Saturday Dec. 14. Offices are closed on Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving Day and weekends except for those days noted above.

Because cutting areas may be quickly limited by snow, dress warmly and plan to get your tree early. Cell phone coverage may be scarce in remote areas so make sure you’ve planned ahead for contingences like flat tires and being stuck on cold, muddy roads. Let someone know where you are going and leave them a map, plus pertinent phone numbers and a description of your vehicle.

More program specifics, including mail-in instructions, may be found at www.fs.usda.gov/main/plumas/passes-permits/forestproducts .
