Many Coloradans want a more hands-on experience when it comes to selecting their Christmas tree than just visiting an urban tree lot.
The U.S. Forest Service annually issues $10 permits for those who want to cut their own trees in designated areas. The South Platte Ranger District office began selling permits Nov. 1 at its Morrison office (19316 Goddard Ranch Court), and an order form can also be downloaded online for those who want to mail in their permit request. Get full information at http://1.usa.gov/SoAiPR or by calling 303-275-5610. Don’t delay — the permits sell out quickly
