Tree permits on sale

There’s nothing like the smell of a fresh-cut Christmas tree to enhance the holiday ambience.

The Bureau of Land Management will begin selling tree-cutting permits at the Grand Junction Field Office,
2815 H Road, during business hours Monday. Cost is $10 per tree.

Local permits also are available daily at the Glade Park Store, 16498 DS Road.

The designated cutting areas are only an hour away from the city and include Dominguez/Farmers Canyon on the Uncompaghre Plateau, Gateway, Tom’s Canyon, 5.7 Road on Glade Park and Round Mountain near
De Beque. Directions and maps will be provided.

Only pinyon pine and junipers can be cut. Trees are for personal use only and not to be resold. Take a hand saw, rope, food, water and blankets in case of emergency. All areas require walking into the forest and dragging out the tree. No motorized vehicles are allowed off the road.

The Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests permits cost $8. These are available at the Grand Valley Ranger District, 2777 Crossroads Blvd., No. 1, or at Padilla Mesa General Store in Mesa.
