Springerville, AZ; October 6, 2017 – Time to begin making your preparations for the wonderful and memorable experience of cutting the family Christmas tree on a national forest.
This year, there are 7,500 Christmas tree permits available on the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests, and sales will begin on Tuesday, October 10. They can be purchased at all five ranger districts and at the supervisor’s office. The ranger districts are open Monday-Friday (8-4:30). Payment methods accepted are credit cards, cash or check (please have a valid driver’s license or photo ID). Some of our districts are selling permits through the mail.
