It’s not Thanksgiving yet…but it’s a good time to start thinking about your Christmas Tree. Holiday trees are available for cutting on Hiawatha National Forest land.
If you are one who likes the “thrill of the hunt,” — the excitement of trudging through the snow in search of the perfect tree — then they have the perfect opportunity for you! For the price of a “tree tag” ($5) and a little sweat, you can cut your own tree from National Forest land! To obtain a permit, in the form of a “tree tag,” stop at your local Ranger District office.
Along with your permit you will receive tree cutting guidelines, information regarding cutting areas, and suggestions for flame-proofing your tree.
For more information, contact the US Forest Service in Munising at (906) 387-2512.
