You know Christmas is right around the corner when the forest service begins to issue permits for Christmas tree cutting. Forest Service spokesperson Lisa Clark says many families make their annual tree choice a family affair. But, she says there are some restrictions.  "We ask that there's a maximum of 5 trees per household. And there are some restrictions on how big the tree is and where you can get it with respect to highways and waterways. All that information is provided at the time that your purchase your permit. But it's a great opportunity to get out in the woods and really make that Christmas tradition part of your own." Clark says that you should research weather and road conditions before heading out. Make sure you know where you are going and let others know as well. Take plenty of water, a first aid kit and a cell phone. There are several places to purchase your permit; you can find them at the Forest Service website:  http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/centraloregon/news/2010/index.shtml.
