License to Cut

If the "do it yourself" policy applies to Christmas trees for you, the U.S. Forest Service has some good news.

The Forest Service has opened 4 Front Range Christmas tree-cutting areas beginning Saturday.

The areas are in the Pike, Arapahoe, and Roosevelt National Forests.

Anyone who buys a $10 permit can cut down a tree in designated areas until December 12th.

The permits are required before entering the cutting areas and are limited to 5 per person.
