BEND, OR -- Christmas tree permits are now available in Central Oregon.  Kassidy Kern with the Deschutes National Forest: " We invite the public to come out and cut their Christmas tree out on the Deschutes or Ochoco National Forest."  Kern tells KBND, "It's a fun, family outing."

 

She says, if you pick up a permit at a forestry office, they can provide information on where to find different types of trees. "I think that there are a lot of people who still get Lodgepole or Ponderosa Pine; they are going to be your lower elevation trees. So, if you're looking for those fir species, you're going to have to go up to a higher elevation." Forest Service officials are warning that weather in higher elevations can turn cold and unpredictable very quickly.
