WILLIAMS, Ariz. (AP) - Christmas tree permits for the Kaibab National Forest will be available later this month.

Forest officials say they will sell tree over-the-counter tags for the Kaibab Forest’s three ranger districts starting Nov. 20.

The permit will allow its holder to cut down a certain species of tree within a designated area until Christmas Eve.

Tags for the North Kaibab Ranger District will go on sale first, followed by tags for the Williams and Tusayan districts on Nov. 21.

About 1,500 permits are available with 800 of them being for the North Kaibab area.

The tags cost $15 each and are non-refundable.

Permit holders will also get a map that shows them where their designated cutting area is.
