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.

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.

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.
