Christmas Trees

Happy Holidays!

Thanks to everyone who has called to start the Holiday Season off on the right foot by checking to see if Christmas tree cutting is allowed on State Forests.  We really appreciate everyone working to "do the right thing" on State Forest lands.

Oregon's State Forests don't issue permits for or allow cutting of Christmas trees.  There are great opportunities to cut your own Christmas trees on most National Forests and at local Christmas tree farms.

Here are some resources to help you find the best place to cut your Christmas tree:
