Christmas tree permits are now available from the Bureau of Land Management's Roseburg District Office.

They'll be offered through Dec. 22.

The cost for a single tree up to 12 feet high is $5. The limit is three trees per household.

Those who buy permits can cut their own trees in either the Swiftwater or South River Resource Areas on BLM-managed lands.

To purchase permits or maps, contact the BLM at 541-440-4930 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. The permits are mailed, so allow several days for delivery.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, permits cannot be purchased in person.

No commercial permits will be issued.
