In Vermont, You Can Cut Your Own Christmas Tree
You can re-enact that scene in the old movie Christmas Vacation.
A family goes into a forest and cuts down a ridiculously tall tree.
The U.S. Forest Service is selling Christmas tree removal permits for $5 in the Green Mountain National Forest of Vermont.
You go into the forest. You cut down the tree yourself. There's only one catch: the tree you choose cannot be more than 20 feet tall.
