Permits to cut Christmas trees now available at Forest Service offices, other outlets

 

Permits to cut a Christmas tree on the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest are available for sale at local Forest Service offices and several commercial outlets. 

Permits cost $5 each and are valid for the cutting of one tree up to 20 feet tall on National Forest land. 

The permit does not authorize cutting on private, state, or other federal lands.

Christmas tree permits are available at:...

 

• Burnt River Market, in Unity

• York’s Park Grocery, in Baker City

• O&M Gas & Grocery, in Elgin

• Wallowa Food City, in Wallowa

• Dollar Stretcher, in Enterprise

• The Sports Corral, in Joseph

• Halfway Market, in Halfway

• Hitching Post Grocery, in Richland

• Brogan Quick Stop, in Brogan

• Drapers Outdoor Store, in Ontario

 

Vending machines with maps and Christmas tree permits are available 24 hours at Forest Service offices in Baker City (3285 11th Street), Halfway (38470 Pine Town Lane) and Joseph (201 E. Second St.). 

Permits are also available at the Forest Service district offices in La Grande and Clarkston, Wash.

The Forest Service Christmas Tree program is designed for families, businesses, and institutions wishing to cut their own Christmas tree for decorating.

“Keep your family and your own safety in mind as you head to the forest,” said Kerry Sherman, resource specialist for the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest. “Carry a Forest map,
snacks, water and dress warm.” 

More information about Christmas tree cutting permits and road conditions can be obtained by calling local Forest Service offices or on the web at www.fs.usda.gov/wallowa-whitman/.
