With Halloween Over, Christmas Tree Permits Are Now Available
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Bureau of Land Management joined the in on the Christmas Creep Friday when it announced it will begin selling non-commercial Christmas tree permits Nov. 5.
The permits will be sold to cut pinyon, pine, juniper and fur trees.
“The holiday season is coming and thousands of people will be finding their Christmas trees on public lands this year,” according to the release.
Permits will cost $10, and there will be a limit of two trees per household for most parts of the state. Some areas, like Fillmore and Richfield, will get a three-tree limit. If you’re getting your tag from the Vernal Field Office, your limit is one tree.
Those in Price, however, will be rich with the Christmas spirit; they can cut a whopping five trees per household.
“Early season cutting is advised as winter weather conditions in the mountains are unpredictable,” according to the release.
The BLM advises those cutting trees inform someone of where they’re going and how long they expect to be gone. The site also suggest people bring supplies with them, including additional warm clothing, gloves, boots, a container of hot liquid, water, and a lunch or a snack.
Another reminder posted: Don’t forget to bring something to cut the tree with, as well as something to secure it to the vehicle.
Tree hunters can go to the BLM website to find field office locations and additional information.
