Cut-your-own Christmas greenery permits are available to active duty, reserve and civilian employees stationed aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico with a valid identification. There is no charge, but a permit is required. Cutting Christmas trees is not permitted.
 
Cutting greenery is permitted only on Dec. 8, 15 and 22, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., in designated areas shown on maps.
 
To obtain authorized entry to the training areas for greenery gathering, you must first sign in (self check-in procedure) at the Game Weigh-in Station across from the Hunter Check-Out Station, Bldg. 5-9.
 
After signing in, take a permit and print your name at the top. This permit must be presented to the sentry post guard along with a valid identification card, verifying your status as a civilian or active/reserve military stationed aboard MCB Quantico. This permit must be visibly displayed in the windshield of the permit holder’s vehicle. Permit holders must return to game weigh-in station and sign out prior to 4 p.m.
