This year, how about a new adventure? A wonderful outdoor experience that will provide lasting memories is to go into our beautiful Big Horn Mountains or any National Forest to select and cut your own Christmas tree. It sounds easy and fun.
The first step is visiting the Lovell Visitors Center or any U.S. Forest Service office and purchasing your $8 permit which comes with information about cutting your tree. This allows you to cut a tree up to 20′ tall. Be sure you don’t cut in wilderness areas, marked timber sale areas, or within 300′ of campgrounds, lodges, summer homes, private land, ranger stations. Have a great time! The tree you select will truly be a special tree!
