Lakeview, Ore. – Permits to cut Christmas trees on theFremont-WinemaNational Forest are on sale now through December 24 at all Forest offices and numerous commercial outlets. 

Christmas tree permits cost $5, and are nonrefundable. Each permit is valid for the cutting of one tree and a maximum of five tags. The Christmas tree permit must be validated by completely removing month, date and year; securely attaching it to the tree trunk between the limbs; and must be visible during transportation.

Cutting areas are located onFremont-WinemaNational Forest’s lands inKlamath andLakecounties. The permit does not authorize cutting on private, state or other federal lands. Christmas trees also cannot be harvested in wilderness areas, campgrounds, developed recreation areas or tree plantations. 

Be aware that some parking areas on theFremont-WinemaNational Forestrequire a Sno-Park permit from the State ofOregon. Also look for posted signs that close certain Forest Service roads inKlamathCountyto motor vehicle traffic and designate them as snowmobile trails. 

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

“Keep your family and your own safety in mind as you head out to look for a Christmas tree on national forest lands,” said Judd Lehman, Forest Timber Program Manager. “Dress warmly and carry a forest map, Motor Vehicle Use Map, snacks and water. Also make sure relatives or friends know where you are going and when to expect you to return.”

Getting your tree early before the snow falls usually means better access on forest roads. High-clearance, 4-wheel drive vehicles and traction devices are recommended when driving on mountain roads at this time of year. Leave early in the day to allow for maximum daylight. Be prepared for unpredictable weather and check with local Forest Service offices for forest road conditions before leaving.
