Cut Your Own Christmas Tree!
Make some great family memories and start a fun tradition by cutting your own Christmas tree in the White Mountains.
You can purchase your permit from Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest Service offices. They must be purchased in person. They will not be selling them online or over the phone this year. The closest office in our area is the Lakeside Ranger Office at 2022 White Mountain Blvd., right next to Navopache Electric.
The cost is $15 each for a tree up to 10 ft. tall. If you want a taller tree, they can give you prices at the office for that. They allow one permit per household, but you are allowed to purchase two additional permits for friends and family.
The ranger office will give you detailed instructions and a map of the designated cutting areas. You can find more information HERE.
