Caribou-Targhee National Forest officials have announced the availability of Christmas Tree cutting permits for the 2012 season.
Caribou-Targhee National Forest officials have begun selling Christmas Tree permits and are processing them now out of the Montpelier Ranger District.
Permits will also be available at each Ranger District Office and the St. Anthony and Idaho Falls Visitor Centers.
Information packets including tags, maps outlining where trees may be cut, restrictions on off-road travel to access trees, tree care and other important details will be given to every customer at each ranger district office and vendor’s business, said officials.
The following local vendors will also sell Christmas tree permits and they will be available the first part of November:
• Preston – True Value Hardware
• Driggs – Peaked Sports and Yostmark
• Montpelier – Broulim’s Grocery Store
• Island Park – Elk Creek Service Station
• Ashton – Dave’s Market and Lenz Electronics
• Rexburg – Valley Wide Farm & Ranch
• Swan Valley – Rainey Creek Country Store
• Palisades – Huskeys
Christmas Tree Permits will be available as follows:
• $10 for a tree up to 12 feet tall.
• $15 for a tree up to 20 feet tall–only available at Ranger District Offices.
Proceeds from the sale of Christmas Tree permits partially goes to vendors selling permits, the Resource Advisory Council to fund projects and to the National Forest where trees are being cut.
