Permit needed for tree-cutting in White Mountains

Posted: Updated:

As people start to get ready for the holiday season, officials in New Hampshire say those interested in chopping down their own Christmas tree from the White Mountain National Forest will need a permit.

A permit costs $5 and is available from forest service offices in Campton, Lincoln, Gorham and Conway.

Several different types of evergreen grow in the forest, including those most preferred: balsam fir and spruce.

Trees can't be cut down near campgrounds, picnic areas, or within 100 feet of a state highway.
