We understand the adventure and fun of cutting your own Christmas tree — we’re no Scrooges , and these may look like nice Christmas trees— but DNR does not allow cutting of Christmas trees on state trust lands. We manage about 2.1 million acres of forestland, but these trees are managed sustainably for habitat, clean water and continuous stream of revenue for public school construction, universities and other state trust beneficiaries.
When we do hold timber auctions, we seek the highest return to fund the state’s public institutions, which means waiting until the trees reach maturity.
The good news is that we know where you can go to legally cut your own Christmas tree in Washington State. Contact your local USDA Forest Service Office, or support your local private tree farm:
