SUSANVILLE, Calif. -- Lassen National Forest Christmas tree permits will be on sale from November 1 through December 21, 2018.
Permits cost $10 and may be used to cut one tree on Lassen National Forest between November 1 and December 25. Each household may purchase up to two permits. Along with the permit, buyers will also receive a map showing cutting areas, requirements, and helpful tips.
Although tree cutting is permitted through December 25, officials recommend cutting early in the season before higher elevations become snowbound. Trees can stay fresh for several weeks when properly cared for.
Permits may be purchased at all Lassen National Forest visitor centers and work stations and via mail. Order forms are available at www.fs.usda.gov/lassen (see “Passes & Permits” section). Mailed requests should be directed to the nearest Forest Service office listed below and must be received on or before December 7. To expedite requests, submitters should write “Christmas Tree Permit” on the envelope.
