Plumas NF Christmas tree permits available

Quincy, CA – Plumas National Forest Christmas tree cutting permits are available at forest offices and may also be purchased by mail.

Walk-in permits are available through December 21 while permits-by-mail must be requested by December 1 to ensure timely delivery. Permits are $10 and include a map of tree cutting areas, as well as safety information and helpful tips. Two permits are allowed per household; please read the instructions on your permit carefully! There are no refunds.

Forest Service offices are closed on Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving Day (offices are open Friday, Nov. 23) and weekends except select Saturdays including November 24 and December 1. Because cutting areas may be quickly limited by snow, dress warmly and plan to get your tree early. Cell phone coverage may be scarce in remote areas so make sure you’ve planned ahead for contingences like flat tires and being stuck on a cold, muddy road!
