If you are planning on staying in one of our Lake Tahoe rentals this holiday season, and are looking for a traditional holiday adventure, the U.S. Forest Service, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit is offering permits for the public to select and cut holiday trees in the Tahoe Basin. There are numerous designated areas for cutting, and many different types of trees to choose from, so you’ll be sure to find your own special tree. And it’s a great activity the whole family can enjoy! Permits are only $10 (limit 2 permits per family), and you can can use them up until December 24th! In addition to the traditional experience, you will help contribute to reduce over-growth and hazardous fire fuels that have built up over years of fire suppression. Removing excessive amounts of small trees from the forest will help create a healthier forest over time, so you will be helping the environment too!
