Residents in Grand Junction and the surrounding area will soon be able to purchase permits to cut down a tree from places like the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison National Forests. 2022 Christmas Tree permits will be made available to the public as of October 13th.

Cut the Tree from the Forest of Your Choice
Christmas trees can only be cut from designated areas only. Visit the Forest Service website to find out about buying in-person options depending on your ranger district. The Every Kid Outdoors program is back to give students the opportunity at a free tree.
