Cut-your-own Christmas tree for $5

RUTLAND– US Forest Service officials are encouraging the public to purchase Christmas tree removal permits should they be interested in a $5 tree for the holidays.
This is a one-time opportunity to cut down a Christmas tree on national forest land during the 2019 holiday season. Christmas trees for personal use may be cut on the Green Mountain National Forest, subject to the following conditions.
The permit must be attached to the tree before transporting it from the site where it was cut. The permit holder is responsible for knowing that the tree comes from Forest Service land. Maps are available at purchase. Trees over 20 feet tall are not designated for cutting by the Christmas tree permit. The height of the tree stump left after a tree has been cut should be six inches or less above the soil.
In addition, this year, all fourth-graders can take advantage of the Every Kid Outdoors initiative and get a free Christmas tree voucher found at
Fourth graders who present a printed copy of the voucher at one of the US Forest Service offices listed below may redeem it for an Every Kid Outdoors Pass and a Christmas tree removal permit.
A Christmas tree removal permit must be purchased at one of the Forest Service offices in Rutland, Manchester Center or Rochester.
