Plumas County Christmas Tree Cutting Permits Available

Posted: Updated:

From the U.S. Forest Service:

Plumas National Forest (PNF) Christmas tree cutting permits (personal use) will be available at PNF offices and at participating local businesses starting November 1. The $10 permit allows you to cut a tree through December 24th, weather permitting.  Permits may also be purchased through the mail.

To receive a permit by mail, please send your name, mailing address and telephone number plus a check or money order (payable to USDA Forest Service) to: Plumas National Forest, Christmas Tree Permit, P.O. Box 11500, Quincy, CA 95971.  Neither cash nor credit cards may be used and a self addressed stamped envelope is no longer needed. You must be 18 years or older to purchase the non-refundable permit and no more than two permits will be mailed to one address or household. Mail requests received after December 1 will be returned as the Forest Service will not guarantee permits will reach their destination prior to December 24. 

Because of the unpredictable weather conditions in the mountains, plan to cut a tree as soon as possible, dress appropriately in warm clothing, and be prepared for possible ice and snow on the roads (carry tire chains). Make it a fun weekend - call local chambers and/or visiter information centers for information about lodging, dining and holiday events in areas near the forest.
