Brian Wright drags his family’s future Christmas tree along a trail on Grand Mesa, which has one of several tree-cutting areas on U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management lands in western Colorado.

Perfect for Christmas

Create holiday memories by cutting down your own tree

Don’t bother trying to compare Christmas trees with someone from Michigan.
My husband, Brian, recalls going with his dad to cut down their family’s Christmas trees in Michigan, and apparently all those trees were 10–12 feet tall, full and beautiful. His family would leave the Christmas tree up at least through January, sometimes into February, and it never dried out.
“The trees back there are perfect,” Brian said as our family drove up Colorado Highway 65 to Grand Mesa to get a “spindly” Colorado Christmas tree.
