Forest Christmas Tree Price Increases

Like everything else in these times, the cost of harvesting trees for the coming Christmas season is increasing on Bridger Teton National Forest.  Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernacek explains that the prices attached to the program had been unchanged for the past 12 years.  Cernacek says the prices actually involve only the smaller trees up to 12 feet tall.  Cernacek says considering the continued nominal cost to consumers, especially compared with trees purchase from vendors, she does not believe the cost increase will impact the popularity of the program.  As of Monday, trees up to 12 feet tall will cost $10 and those 12 to 25 feet tall will cost $15.  Conversely, Cernacek says firewood prices will decrease on January first so that a $20 permit will purchase five cords rather than four cords such a permit allowed previously.
