CHRISTMAS TREE PERMITS
Boise and Payette national forests vendors will begin selling Christmas tree permits Nov. 23. Permits will be available at Forest Service offices and the Interagency Visitor Information Center located at 1387 South Vinnell Way in Boise, starting Nov. 25. Each permit allows one tree to be cut, with a limit of three permits per family. For both national forests, the cost of a permit for one tree is $10, and the maximum height allowed is 12 feet. A big change we have this year is there will be no permits sold for the Mountain Home Ranger District due to the summer wildfires, said Audrey Karpe, Boise National Forest tree coordinator.
