RUTLAND, VT. (AP) — Vermonters who want to cut down their own Christmas trees can do so in the Green Mountain National Forest with a $5 permit.
Permits will be available to buy online with a $2.50 service fee or in-person at a Green Mountain National Forest office. This year, in support of the Every Kid Outdoors initiative, the Forest Service says it will provide every fourth and fifth grade student a free Christmas tree voucher by registering online.
Students who register must present a printed voucher to get the free Christmas tree permit. Trees may only be cut in designated areas.
