CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The U.S. Forest Service says it's not too early to starting thinking about that Christmas tree.
The agency's Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit will begin selling
Christmas tree cutting permits on Nov. 7.
Each permit costs $10, payable by check or cash. Credit cards won't be accepted. There is a limit of two permits per family.
Permit sales will end Dec. 23, and permits are valid for cutting trees on or before Dec. 25 in designated cutting areas. Maps of cutting areas will be provided when permits are purchased.
