Notice of proposed fee increase.
The Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, Bridgeport Ranger District is proposing to increase the fee for Christmas tree permits from $5.00 to $10.00 per tag (ie. an individual Christmas tree). This is a proposed fee, and a final determination will be based upon further analysis of the proposal and public comment. Funds from fees would be used for the continued operation, visitor services, maps, and law enforcement while issuing and enforcing Christmas Tree permits.
Comments will be accepted through May 30, 2015. Increased fees would likely begin in November 2015.
