The following are the terms and conditions associated with your Christmas tree permit: • Maximum size tree to be cut is 15 feet tall with no more than a 6-inch diameter base. • Leave a stump less than 12 inches in height and remove leftover branches on the stump to avoid re-sprouting. • Do not cut the top off of a larger tree. • Select your tree at least 100 feet from stream banks. • Christmas trees cannot be harvested in wilderness areas, active timber sales, developed recreation areas, or tree plantations. • Cedar trees cannot be cut on the Klamath, Chiloquin, or Chemult Ranger Districts. • The permit is valid only on National Forest lands and does not authorize cutting on private, state, or other federal lands. Permits purchased via Recreation.gov must be printed out and in your possession at all times while cutting and transporting a Christmas tree on the Fremont-Winema National Forest. Permits purchased from sources other than Recreation.gov sources must be validated and attached to the tree so it is visible during transportation. • Validate your permit and attach the tag to the tree so it is visible during transportation. While cutting your Christmas tree on the Fremont-Winema National Forests, please remember to: • Clear branches and debris from road banks and ditches. • Allow plenty of time for travel. Dress warmly and carry a forest map, snacks, and water. Also, make sure relatives or friends know your planned route, general area of travel, and return time. • Use High-Clearance 4x4 vehicles and traction devices when driving on mountain roads at this time of year. Forest Service roads are not maintained during the winter. Please keep in mind that some roads are designated snowmobile trails and are only open to travel by snowshoes, skis or snowmobiles. Additionally, we ask that you be considerate of the environment and tread lightly. • Be aware that some parking areas on National Forest lands require a Sno-Park permit from the State of Oregon. • Make sure you bring along a Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM). The MVUM is your guide to which roads and trails are available for motorized vehicle use. Get your free map at any Forest Service office or online from the Forest’s website at: https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/fremont-winema/maps-pubs/?cid=STELPRDB5352409 The Suggested Christmas Tree Areas map includes areas on the Chemult, Chiloquin, and Klamath Ranger Districts where opportunities for Christmas tree cutting may be found. Read information on the companion Motor Vehicle Use Map below. This product is produced from information prepared by the USDA, Forest Service, or from other suppliers. The Forest Service can not assure the reliability or suitability of this information for a particular purpose. The data and product accuracy may vary due to compilation from various sources, including modeling and interpretation, and may not meet National Map Accuracy Standards. This information may be updated, corrected, or otherwise modified without notification. This map is a companion map to the Forest Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM). An MVUM is a legal enforceable document that identifies the roads, trails, and areas where motor vehicle use is allowed in a Forest Service administrative unit or ranger district. MVUMs are reissued each year. It is the responsibility of the motor vehicle user to acquire the current MVUM. The MVUMs display National Forest System (NFS) routes (roads and trails) designated as open to motorized travel. The MVUMs also display allowed uses by vehicle class (ex. highway-legal vehicles, vehicles 50 inches in width or less and motorcycles); seasonal allowances, off travel distance allowances, and provides information on other travel rules and regulations. Visitors should not rely on any other maps for making decisions about motorized travel. A current printed copy of the Forest MVUM is available FREE from local Forest Service offices, and the current downloadable copy is available FREE from www.fs.fed.us/recreation/programs/ohv/ohv_maps.shtml USDA Forest Service is an equal opportunity provider, employer and lender.
