ALBUQUERQUE – It’s time to think about Christmas trees for this upcoming holiday season.
Permits for these confers will be available over the counter at Cibola National Forest offices from Nov. 22 through Dec. 24.
The cost is $10 per permit, and each household will be limited to only one permit. Up to nine additional permits may be purchased for family or/and friends.
“Our Christmas tree cutting program remains very popular and is a great way to spend a day in your national forest with friends or family,” said timber management officer Ian Fox.
“It is important to note that cutting Christmas trees helps thin overcrowded timber stands on national forests,” Fox added.
Christmas Tree Maps and permit purchase information can be downloaded from www.fs.fed.us/r3/Cibola.
