Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2014 7B Lassen National Forest Christmas tree permits will be available to buy in person from Nov. 1 through Dec. 19. Each $10 permit allows for the cutting of one tree on LNF lands during the period of Nov. 1 through Dec. 25. The maximum number of permits. allowed per household is two. Along with the permit, purchasers will be provided a map showing cutting areas, requirements and helpful tips. Permits may also be purchased through the marl. Order forms are available at (se "Passes Permits"). Marled requests must be received by Dec. 10 and should be directed to the nearest Forest Service office. To expedite the request, write ',Christmas Tree Permit" on the envelope. When purchasing by marl, include the following: printed name and address to which the permit is to be marled; purchaser's daytime telephone number; a check or money order (with driver's license number written upon it) for $10 per permit, made out to USDA Forest Service; and the name of the person who will be signing the permit and cutting the tree. Allow at least one week for processing of the request. Tree cutters must ensure that the tree permit tag is visible at all times during transport of the tree. The permit must be attached to the tree and sealed in such a manner that the permit must be cut or the seal broken for the permit to be removed. A transportation permit from the local sheriff's office is required if transporting more than five trees in the same vehicle. Tree cutters are reminded to be prepared for sudden weather changes and for colder conditions at higher elevations. Although tree cutting is permitted through Dec. 25, officials recommend cutting early in the season before higher elevations become snowbound. Trees can stay fresh for some time if properly cared for. One helpful hint is to bring an old tarp in which to wrap the tree during transport. The tarp helps to prevent broken branches and other damage to the tree as it's removed from the forest. The tarp can also help protect against wind damage on the way home. To help keep a tree fresh once it arrives home, cut 2 inches from the bottom and place it in water. Keep the tree watered and in a shady spot outside until it's time to bring it inside. assistance Pacific Gas and Electric Co. has been implementing an automated call-out to 3,000 Plumas County customers during the month of October that will advise them of the availability of REACH and LIHEAP.
