Christmas Tree Cutting Tips

  • Stay on designated roads and respect private land. Some tree cutting areas may be inaccessible after snowfall – early season cutting is advisable.
  • Be prepared! Tree-cutters traveling through Utah’s public lands should be prepared for poor road conditions or inclement weather. Make sure you have everything you need for an outdoor venture including warm clothes, food, water, and safety equipment.
  • Let someone know where you’ll be going and when you plan to return. If you get stranded, call for help, and stay with your group and vehicle until help arrives.
  • Please dispose of trees properly. Consider composting or using the tree as firewood, if those are options available to you. 
  • Keep in mind that hunting seasons are usually open during these times, so wearing bright colors is advisable.
