Coconino National Forest will be selling a limited number of over-the-counter Christmas tree permits to the public beginning Nov. 17. The permits will be good for cutting on in a specific area of the Mogollon Rim Ranger District from Nov. 18 until Dec. 24.
A total 600 permits will be available at $15 each, which can be paid via cash, credit card, or personal check. The permits will be issued one per household and are first-come, first-served until sold out. Last year, all permits sold out within the first week.
The permit allows the holder to cut a fir or ponderosa pine tree that is not more than 10 feet in height within a designated area on the Mogollon Rim Ranger District, which is located approximately one hour south of Flagstaff.
Permits will be sold over-the-counter at the Mogollon Rim Ranger Station, which will have 300 permits available, the Flagstaff Ranger Station, which will have 200 permits available, and the Coconino National Forest Supervisor's Office, which will have 100 permits available.
