Christmas Tree Cutting Permit Sales to Begin November 30

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO., November 23, 2015. The Pike National Forest, Pikes Peak Ranger District, will be selling Christmas tree cutting permits from November 30 through December 16, 2015. Permits may be purchased at the Pikes Peak Ranger District office at 601 South Weber St. in Colorado Springs. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The cost is $10.00 per tree permit.

Tree cutting permits will also be sold in Woodland Park on four weekend days, December 5, 6, and 12, 13, between the hours of 8:00 am and 2:30 pm at the east parking lot of the Woodland Park Middle School, on the corner of Rampart Range Road and Kelley Road.
