Cut your Christmas tree at Starker Forests!
If you would like to find and cut your Christmas tree on Starker Forests lands, please come to our office to get a permit.
For a $5 donation to Old Mill Center or the Boys and Girls Club (your choice), you may have a permit to cut your own tree. Starker Forests will match the donation to each organization.
We will give you a map of the area we have selected for cutting Christmas trees when you get your permit. The area is within ten miles of Philomath.
Christmas tree permits are available M-F 7 am-4:30 pm until December 23rd.
Our office is closed Thursday and Friday (11/28 & 11/29) for the Thanksgiving holiday.
