Forest Service Christmas Tree Permits


Now that Thanksgiving is over we can begin thinking about Christmas and putting up trees and decorations.  If you want the “fun, old-fashioned, family Christmas” experience of going out to the forest to find that perfect tree like the Griswolds then be sure to get a permit before you go.  Permits to harvest Christmas trees from the Ochoco and Deschutes National Forest are available at any Forest Service office and a number of Central Oregon retail outlets for $5.  You must have a permit for each tree that is harvested with a maximum of five trees per household.  Happy Hunting!
