Green….fresh, environmentally friendly! The National Forest Service here in CO sells tree cutting permits every year to help thin out the forest for healthy forest growth and regrowth. Here are some links if you are here in CO to obtain a permit Pikes Peak National Forest - Woodland Park Area Permit Info or Front Range. If you are out of state, check with your local Nation Forest!
Each year, we head up to the mountains to cut down our fresh Christmas tree. This has been a family tradition since the 1st year we moved to CO. It is a day we cherish! We always stop by to take a pic with Smokey as we enter into the National Forest cutting area. And then off we go……
Until we find the perfect one
Time to work! Sawing…
We did it!
Back to the car
Now that the serious work is complete…..
Always have to go bouldering
We hope to share this tradition with others!
