In the movies, going out and cutting down the family Christmas tree usually seems like a magical moment. Other times it is a disaster. But if you are looking for the adventure and magic of finding your very own tree in the mountains - the time is here! Permits to cut your own Christmas tree are now available and they only cost $5 for trees up to ten feet tall!

So what are your plans? Do you go up to the mountains with the family and cut down your own tree because it is fun and only $5 or do you let someone else do the hard work and you pay more to get your live tree from a parking lot?
