Harvesting Your Own Christmas Tree Instead of Buying One

Christmas trees usually range from $50 to $80. With that said, is there a better way to acquire a Christmas tree without spending much? Thankfully, there is, and that is by harvesting your own tree, which would only cost you $5, “and you could go to any national forest or BLM lands.” Yep, you’ve heard it correctly: it will only cost you $5.

“Traditions like these are a great way to learn about public lands,” says Wes Siler. “Forests… are managed for multiple use, so they exist to provide a commercial benefit from timber harvest as well as animal conservation and recreational access. By harvesting a small tree today from an overcrowded grove, we’re actually participating in forest management.”
