It will begin to feel a lot more like Christmas this Tuesday as the Bitterroot National forest begins to issue Christmas tree permits.

Bitterroot National Forest Spokesman Todd McKay reminds everyone to keep a few things in mind when they head out for the perfect tree.

  • Try to take a tree from an area crowded with trees, this will give the others more light and available nutrients.
  • Do not take a tree from a restricted area such as a camping area or a developed recreation site.
  • Finally, don’t take the top off of a tree, take the whole tree and try not to leave a stump higher than eight inches.

 

Of course safety is always an issue when heading out to the woods in winter weather. McKay advises all tree harvesters to dress warmly and to prepare for fluctuating temperatures. Christmas tree permits are $5.00 each.
