LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests are offering permits to cut Christmas trees at locations in Wyoming and Colorado.

Permits cost $10 and allow for the cutting of one tree on National Forest lands. There is a limit of five permits per household and trees must be for personal use, not for resale.

Some areas are closed to cutting and people interested in getting a tree should contact the area ranger district for site-specific information, including road conditions and area restrictions.

Cutting trees is prohibited in wilderness areas and cutting isn't allowed in the Pole Mountain Unit of the Laramie Ranger District.
