CAMPTON, N.H. (AP) — The White Mountain National Forest is offering $5 Christmas tree permits for people who want to cut their own trees.
Several different types of evergreen grow in the forest, such as balsam fir and spruce.
Each family may cut one tree per permit and can use a handsaw or ax; chainsaws are not permitted.
Trees should not be cut in or near campgrounds, picnic areas, experimental forests, wilderness, timber sale areas or within 100 feet of a state highway.
Forest offices are located in Campton, Lincoln, Gorham and Conway.
