Many Coloradans want a more hands-on experience when it comes to selecting their Christmas tree than just visiting an urban tree lot.

The U.S. Forest Service annually issues $10 permits for those who want to cut their own trees in designated areas. The South Platte Ranger District office began selling permits Nov. 1 at its Morrison office (19316 Goddard Ranch Court), and an order form can also be downloaded online for those who want to mail in their permit request. Get full information athttp://1.usa.gov/SoAiPR or by calling 303-275-5610. Don’t delay — the permits sell out quickly

For details on the other sites in Colorado where tree cutting is allowed, visit the Forest Service website at us.usda.gov/detail/r2/recreation.

Commercial tree farms also offer pick-you-own options and holiday activities. Here are a few along the Front Range.

Your Neighborhood Christmas Tree Farm, 4340 13th St., Boulder, (303) 449-7532; neighborhoodchristmastreefarm.com

This tree farm in the north Boulder area sells blue spruce and white fir trees that you can cut, and has pre-cut Fraser and Noble firs.

Fern Hill Farm, 2001 Fern Ave.; Greeley; 970-352-4478; fernhillfarm-christmastrees.com

Since 2004, Clifford and Sally Clift have been selling trees — mostly Scotch pine — grown on their 20-acre farm east of Greeley. They will be open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Nov. 23 until Dec. 16, and by appointment.

Merry Christmas Tree Farm, 18520 Shannon Road, Black Forest, 719-481-4946; pikespeakalpacas.com
