Jackson, Wyo. - It's going to cost more for people who like to cut their own Christmas trees in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in northwest Wyoming this year.

Forest supervisor Jacque Buchanan has approved increasing Christmas tree permit fees by $5 effective next Monday.

The new price will be $10 for a permit to harvest a tree up to 12 feet in height. tree permits for evergreens between 12 and 25 feet tall will be $15 and any tree over 25 feet will cost $25.

The Bridger-Teton forest office says the increased revenue will help pay for the personnel at the forest offices that issue the tree permits.

Prices for christmas tree permits have remained the same on the bridger-teton for the past 12 years.
