CAMPTON, N.H. (AP) — The White Mountain National Forest say people interested in finding and cutting down their own Christmas tree need a permit, a sharp saw, some cocoa — and a little patience.

A permit costs $5 and is available from forest service offices in Campton, Lincoln, Gorham and Conway.

Several different types of evergreen grow in the forest. The most preferred are the balsam fir and the spruce.

Trees can't be cut near campgrounds, picnic areas, experimental forests, wilderness, timber sale areas, or within 100 feet of a state highway.
