The Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests are selling Forest Service Christmas tree permits at a cost of $8 per tree.

Permits come with information explaining regulations and helpful tips. Some areas of the forest are restricted from cutting trees and these are depicted on available maps. Also this year as part of the More Kids in a Park (MKIP) Program, students with a valid fourth grade pass or paper voucher receive a free permit to cut a Christmas tree on the national forest. The free permits are ONLY available at Forest Service offices.

Forest Service Christmas tree permits are available locally in Delta at 2250 Highway 50; in Hotchkiss at Weekender Sports; in Montrose at 2465 S. Townsend Avenue; and in Paonia at the Paonia Ranger District office on North Rio Grande Avenue or at Paonia Flower Shop. Please plan ahead and be prepared for winter conditions. Start early, since winter days are shorter, and be advised many forest roads are not plowed.
