SANTA FE, (KRQE) – According to the Santa Fe National Forest Service, cut-your-own-tree permits are running out fast this year.
When the permits went on sale Nov. 24, 500 were available at the Forest Headquarters and the Santa Fe REI, and as of Tuesday, they were all sold. Some permits are still available at the Ranger District offices and some third-party vendors, but Forest Service officials say those are going fast, too.
The permits are $10 and can be purchased through Dec. 24. For more information about the Christmas tree permits, contact your local ranger district or call Forest Service headquarters at 505-438-5300.
