Did you know that the White Mountain National Forest is welcoming the public to select and cut a Christmas tree? With the purchase of a $5.00 permit, families can venture into the White Mountain National Forest and cut their own holiday tree. Looking to continue or start a special tradition to share with family and friends while helping to maintain a healthy forest?

For every tree that is found, cut and carried home as a holiday treasure, you’re also contributing to the overall forest health. Christmas tree permits are a unique opportunity for citizens to help thin densely populated stands of small-diameter trees – the perfect size for a Christmas tree.

For more information and to buy your permit, visit: http://www.fs.usda.gov/whitemountain or https://www.facebook.com/WhiteMountainNF
