Free Permits Available for “Cut-Your-Own” Evergreen Trees at Moosehorn NWR

The Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge invites families in the area to cut their seasonal evergreen trees this year on the Baring or Edmunds Division of the refuge. Each family may cut two evergreen trees for personal use. This activity will remove trees that are normally cut for road maintenance. 

A free permit is required and the permit must be in possession while cutting and transporting trees. No trees may be cut in the Wilderness Areas on the refuge. Tipping or gathering of evergreen boughs in any area is strictly prohibited. 

Permits, information, and maps are available at the Refuge Headquarters, located off the Charlotte Road. The office is open Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please call 454-7161 for more information.
