PHOENIX — Christmas tree-cutting permits will be available by mid-November for five of Arizona’s six national forests.
The Forest Service is once again teaming up with Big Five Sporting Goods Stores statewide to release about 10,000 permits to the public.
“It’s an exciting and fun thing to do with your family,” said Jackie Banks with the Kaibab National Forest. “A great experience that your kids will always remember.”
The permits cost $15 and come with a map of areas where trees can be cut down. The forests taking part are the Apache-Sitgreaves, Coconino, Kaibab, Prescott and Tonto.
“There are specifics areas where you can cut,” Banks said. “They take the permit along with them and put the tag on the tree. We also have signs in the woods for the designated Christmas tree areas.”
