Pike and San Isabel National Forest Christmas Tree Permit
Permits for the Pikes Peak Ranger District will go on sale November 25th with cutting dates through December 18th.

Whether this is your first time cutting your own Christmas tree or it's been a family tradition for generations, it is a special experience that creates lifelong memories! This permit allows you to cut a Christmas Tree within designated areas of the Pike & San Isabel National Forests.  

Please take the time to read the following information:

Permits are only valid on the district for which they were purchased. Permits are not transferable nor may they be extended from one year to the next.

Please print your Christmas tree permit and make sure you have it with you. 

The South Platte Ranger District is closest to Denver. Permits in this district apply to specific cutting areas (Buffalo Creek, Sugar Creek, and Camp Fickes) within limited date ranges and may sell out. The first cutting day is the Friday after Thanksgiving. The last cutting day is typically the second Sunday of December. Permits are not sold for this day as it is considered a make-up day. If you purchased and are unable to use a Buffalo Creek permit on your scheduled day, you may use it on this day.

The Pikes Peak Ranger District is closest to Colorado Springs with specific cutting areas near Woodland Park. Permits go on sale November 25th with cutting allowed through December 18th. There is not a quota, so permits will not sell out.

The South Park Ranger District is closest to the towns of Fairplay, Jefferson, Como, and Lake George. Most of the district is open for cutting and there is not a quota, so permits will not sell out. Cutting is allowed between October 13 and December 31.

The Salida Ranger District is closest to the towns of Salida and Buena Vista. Most of the district is open for cutting. There is not a quota, so permits will not sell out. Permits go on sale Nov. 10 and cutting is permitted through Dec. 31.

Purchase Tree Permit

Where to cut your tree
  • Do not cut on private land, in Wilderness areas, designated campgrounds, or existing tree plantations.
  • Do not cut trees in or within 200 feet of any developed areas, including Campgrounds, Picnic Areas, Recreation Areas, Trailheads, Scenic Overlooks and Administrative Sites.
  • Christmas tree cutting is prohibited in Timber Sale areas. Do not cut any tree marked with colored paint, flagging or signs.
  • Do not cut trees within 100 feet of any waterway, forest road or trail.
  • Maps showing public and private land boundaries are available online and at district offices.
 
Selecting Your tree
  • You may cut a tree up to 15 feet tall or 6 inches in diameter at ground level.
  • Any species of tree may be cut, however cutting Bristlecone Pine is not recommended. This is due to their sappy nature, which is both messy and can be a fire hazard.
  • If snow is on the ground, remove it from around the stump so you can accurately measure the stump and tree height. Trees must be cut within 6 inches of the ground.
  •  
  • Choose a tree from a densely forested area, which will give the remaining trees more space to grow.
  • Take the whole tree. Do not remove the top of the tree; cut down and utilize the entire tree and don't leave a high stump.

The Best Evergreens For Christmas Trees
Here’s how four popular evergreens stack up.
By Cameron Beall, Southern Living
Published on November 16, 2022

Spruce, pine, or fir? That is the Christmastime question. Every year, those who are loyal to an authentic evergreen Christmas tree debate the merits of which type of tree to bring into their home. And the truth is, there’s no one right answer. Every variety has its pros and cons, so the evergreen that will best suit your needs will really depend on your priorities.

We’ve rated four of the most popular evergreens—Fraser fir, Douglas fir, white pine, and Colorado blue spruce—on their fullness, strength, fragrance, and longevity out of four, with four being the best performance.

Christmas Tree Permits Available Online

Release Date: Nov 21, 2022

Contact(s): Jen Swacina

PUEBLO, CO, November 21, 2022 — Christmas tree permits for the Pike-San Isabel National Forests & Cimarron and Comanche National Grasslands are available to purchase online through Recreation.gov. Permits for the Leadville, Salida, San Carlos, South Park and South Platte Ranger Districts are currently on sale. Sales for the Pikes Peak Ranger District will begin November 25, 2022.

“I have fond memories of taking my daughter, who is now fifteen years old, to cut a Christmas tree when she was still learning to walk,” said acting Deputy Forest and Grassland Supervisor Brian Banks. “Now she will be driving us,” Banks said. “It is a wonderful opportunity to spend time outdoors while helping the Forest Service maintain resilient landscapes.” 

To purchase a Christmas tree permit, create an account on Recreation.gov or log into an existing account. The cost is $12.50 per tree for the San Carlos, Salida and Leadville Ranger Districts and $22.50 per tree for the South Park, South Platte and Pikes Peak Ranger Districts (including a $2.50 online transaction fee). The Recreation.gov site contains maps of designated cutting areas as well as tips for selecting and cutting trees. Permitted dates and areas vary so it is important to carefully read all the information prior to purchasing.

When venturing out to cut a Christmas tree in the forest, bring a printed copy of the permit along with a paper map as cell service may be spotty or unavailable. Keep in mind that Forest Service roads are generally not plowed and some roads close seasonally. Handsaws and axes are the only tools allowed - chainsaws are prohibited. Bring warm layers, a rope to secure the tree to the vehicle, and have fun.

For information about in-person or mail-in purchasing options, please contact the individual district offices. Visit www.fs.usda.gov/main/psicc/passes-permits .

Still in the process of getting my tree lot up at my site next to the Bailey Feed Store, 1 Delwood Dr. I currently have 8 trees that were just cut in the last 2 days ranging in size from 3ft Charlie Brown size to approximately 15ft. I even have a cute twisted Grinch like tree. I will continue hauling trees out of the forest as I have many more trees. Please pm if interested.
