Sharpen that ax, Christmas is coming

Christmas tree cutting permits are now available from the White River National Forest and the Bureau of Land Management-Glenwood Springs Resource Area. Christmas tree permits sold by either agency will be valid for both National Forest and BLM-administered public land. Permits cost $10 per tree with a five-tree maximum.

The permits may be purchased at any White River National Forest office or the BLM Field Office in Glenwood Springs, Monday through Friday during normal business hours. Christmas tree cutting is permitted at most locations on BLM-administered lands in the Glenwood Springs Resource Area. The BLM has suggested cutting areas. Maps of these areas are available when you pick up your permit.

Most National Forest land within the White River National Forest is open for cutting with the following exceptions: wilderness areas, commercial timber sales, recreation and ski areas, administrative areas, Glenwood Canyon and areas adjacent to main roads.

For additional information, please contact the White River National Forest at 945-2521 or the BLM at 947-2800.
