Cut Your Own Tree In The National Forest
That word from a spokesperson for the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest... Suzanne Flory.
She says you can cut your own tree on the national forest lands...
Forest Service permits come with a list of guidelines that include reminders that no trees may be cut in wilderness areas, marked timber sale areas or within 300 feet of campgrounds, lodges, summer homes, private lands and ranger stations.
Flory says to remember the trees are in a natural growth state and are not the custom cut trees like on a tree farm.
Make sure your chosen tree is on National Forest System lands; visitor maps can be viewed or purchased at Forest Service offices including your local district ranger office.
