With a hint of snow in the air, thoughts may be turning to the selection and cutting of a Christmas Tree in one of the nearby National Forests.  Both Bridger-Teton and Caribou Targhee National Forests have already initiated their tag sales for Christmas Tree Cutting, with a fee of $10 for a tree up to 12 feet tall and $15 for a tree up to 20 feet tall.  Bridger-Teton national Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernacek says additionally, there are restrictions about where those trees may be cut relating to their distance from the roads or proximity to residences.  Tags and maps are available from the forest district offices or the interagency visitor center on north Cache Street in Jackson.  Cernacek admits that an early outing to find the family tree has its advantages including access to areas that may become inaccessible due to later snowfalls, and certainly less frigid temperatures. For those wishing to harvest a tree on the Caribout-Targhee National Forest, sales outlets or vendors, with their days and times of operations, can be found at the Caribou-Targhee National Forest website.
