Permits are now available for people to cut down Christmas trees on approved areas of U.S. Bureau of Land Management land in Wyoming.
Permits are available in any BLM field office in Wyoming. The BLM says prices generally range from $5 to $10 per tree depending on the tree's size and location.
Up to five trees can be purchased on a single permit.
The BLM recommends Engelmann spruce, sub-alpine fir, Douglas fir and lodgepole pine as the best Christmas tree species.
Christmas tree-cutting is prohibited in wilderness areas, wilderness study areas, timber sale areas, and administrative sites such as developed campgrounds.
A different permit is required to cut down Christmas trees on U.S. Forest Service land.
