Even though the Halloween candy hasn’t yet turned stale, it’s time to think about the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree.
The U.S. Forest Service is offering $10 cutting permits for Christmas trees in the Pike National Forest near Buffalo Creek.
Tree-hunters can purchase up to five permits, according to Barbara Timock, spokeswoman for the U.S. Forest Service. Last year the Forest Service sold 7,000 permits. This year, Timock is encouraging people to get their permits early.
