CAMPTON, N.H. (AP) - Some fourth-graders will have a chance to get a free holiday tree-cutting permit in the White Mountain National Forest.

Fourth-graders who present a valid Every Kid in Park pass will be eligible as part of a national program in which children plan trips to and visit parks.

Christmas tree permits can be bought for $5 from forest officials at offices in Campton, Lincoln, Gorham and Conway.

Several different types of evergreen grow in the White Mountain National Forest. Many people prefer the balsam fir because of fragrance and needle retention. Others prefer the spruce because of the fullness of the branches and the classic shape.
