The permit also needs to be attached to the tree and sealed so that the permit must be cut or the Seal broken to be removed. If you plan to transport more than five trees in the same vehicle, a transporta- tion permit is required from the sheriff's office. Tree cutters are reminded to "be prepared" for sudden weather changes and colder conditions when in higher elevations, A fun family )uting can become miserable and even dangerous with a quick change of weather for the unprepared. The permits expire on Dec. 25, however forest officials recommend cutting your tree early in the season before the higher elevations are snow bound. Trees can stay fresh for quite some time if cared for correctly. To help keep your tree fresh, cut two inches from the bottom of your tree when you get home and place it in water. Keep your tree watered and in a shady spot until you are ready for it in the house. Another help.ful hint is to bring an old tarp to wrap your tree in. Then when you drag your tree out of the forest, the tarp protects the tree and helps you avoid breaking branches. The tarp can also help avoid wind damage on the way home.
