There’s fresh white snow blanketing the region, ushering in the holiday season, and the Plumas National Forest has opened Christmas tree-cutting permits. You can pick yours up at your local Forest Service office or www.Recreation.gov/. The Plumas Forest is not selling mail-in permits this year.
They will cost you $10 and are nonrefundable. You can get two per household, and it only allows you to cut on the Plumas forest.
If you have a Fourth grader with an Every Kid Outdoors (EKO) pass can use their pass to get a free Christmas tree permit.
Permits can be found at:
Beckwourth Ranger Station in Blairsden
Forest Supervisor’s Office or Mt. Hough Ranger District in Quincy
Feather River Ranger District in Oroville
The forest service welcomes you to cut your tree as you are helping reduce hazardous fuels by removing smaller trees from the forest floor.
