Plumas NF Offers Christmas Tree-Cutting Permits

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
530-836-2575

Forest Supervisor’s Office or Mt. Hough Ranger District in Quincy
530-283-2050

Feather River Ranger District in Oroville
530-534-6500

The forest service welcomes you to cut your tree as you are helping reduce hazardous fuels by removing smaller trees from the forest floor.
