Christmas tree permits to go on sale

This weekend on Nov. 4 and Nov. 5, the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest will issue Christmas tree cutting permits for the Heber-Kamas ranger district, to the first 1,000 people to show up at Soldier Hollow Resort, 2002 Soldier Hollow Dr., in Midway.

District officials said they will start issuing wristbands at 6 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 4, and Saturday, Nov. 5, to people waiting in line at Soldier Hollow. Those individuals can return between 8 a.m. and noon, on the same day, to purchase a $10 permit.

Permits are limited to one per household and individuals must have a valid driver's license to purchase one and be at least 16 years old.

Once issued a permit, individuals in the district are limited to subalpine fir trees and will have until Dec. 24 to cut down a tree in designated cutting areas.
