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
