Fresh Christmas Trees This Week!
at the
Valles Caldera National Preserve

Help Restore the Forest!

Los Amigos de Valles Caldera’s Christmas Tree forest restoration project has been so successful that we ran out of trees and needed to cut more on Monday!

We apologize to those who drove up last weekend and couldn’t get a tree. We were only able to cut 40 more trees for this week because of deep snow in the restoration area. These freshly cut trees will be available each day between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Valle Grande Entrance Station, off Hwy 4 between mile marker 39 and 40, through December 11th. The trees will generally be White Fir of varying sizes from about 4 feet to 12 feet. Suggested donations will be $15, $30 and $45. Proceeds will be used to support ecological restoration and education at the preserve.

During the week, trees will be available by credit card only through the Valle Grande Bookstore at the Entrance Station. Los Amigos volunteers will be offering the trees on Saturday, December 10th and Sunday, December 11th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will accept cash or checks.

We will be offering coupons for 10% off of purchases at the bookstore for anyone getting a tree. If you were unable to get a tree last weekend, please email and we will mail you a discount coupon.

The tree cutting is part of our helping the Valles Caldera National Preserve thin overgrown forested areas to protect it from further large wildfires. We hope you will be able to come out and choose a tree for you and your family. Please check road conditions before traveling. We want you to be safe!
