Holiday tree permits for 2021
By Patte Smith
Purchasing holiday tree cutting permits for Colorado state ranger districts has changed over the years. The ranger districts that are close to the Front Range now encourage the public to visit https://www.recreation.gov/tree-permits/ to order 2021 cutting permits to purchase a permit.
The South Platte Ranger District and the South Park Ranger District holiday tree cutting permits go on sale October 15 through December 13. (Note: The fees and season dates chart on the website lists incorrect dates.)
There is also information and tips provided on the website about planning your tree cutting trip, cutting tips and how to care for the tree at home. Maps with the various tree cutting areas and phone numbers for the ranger districts are included.
