- If the name of the farm is blue with an underline; that's a link to their website. Click on it for the most current hours and information.
- ALWAYS call the farm or store BEFORE YOU GO to confirm their supply, their hours
and whether they have trees, are allowing choose-and-cut or just precut trees; and which attractions or winter activities are available.
All three can change during the short Christmas season, due to weather, demand and the farmer's business conditions! Farms get sold, shut down or run out of trees, and they don't all update me every day, let alone every year. For

You can also get a permit to cut a tree from the forests. Here's how:
The Bureau of Land Management, Carson City Field Office, and the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, Carson Ranger District will sell Christmas tree permits beginning November 22 and ending December 24 at a variety of locations across western Nevada and eastern California. The agencies conduct Christmas tree sales to thin small trees in overstocked areas and to provide recreational experiences for local residents. Some cutting areas may not be accessible after snowfall, so it is advisable to cut trees early in the season. The nonrefundable permits from both agencies are valid through December 25.
- Tree cutters should bring along their own saws, warm clothing, a first-aid kit, extra food and water, heavy rope or chain and shovel and tire chains in the event of bad road conditions or inclement weather.
