Where You Can Legally Cut Your Own Christmas Tree In Utah

“In a tradition from way back, my family would make an annual trek into the forest, search out the perfect Christmas tree, then chop it down and carry it home where we would make it a centerpiece of our holiday festivities. I have many fond memories of those trips, enjoyed during a simpler time when we lived in the country.” – Dave Webb

You can still cut your own tree in Utah, if you buy the appropriate permit. Forest managers annually offer a suitable number of permits and allow people to cut trees from specific locations. The federal Bureau of Land Management, which manages much of the public land in Utah, provided the information below.
