Christmas trees available from 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. This year, available trees are “shaped” as they are in an area that has been managed for Christmas tree production.
Permits are available for a $5 donation to Old Mill Center or the Boys and Girls Club (your choice). 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. The area three miles southwest of Blodgett.
Christmas tree permits are available M-F 7 am-4:30 pm until December 23rd.
All gates except those in the Alsea area will be closed during the upcoming 2nd elk season due to the ice storm last week.
Tree Planting Day is February 7th. Call our office to sign up!
Mark your calendars for February 7, 2015.
Fire season has ended. We will open our gates that are normally opened for hunting season as we are able to over the next week.
Our gates will remain closed until ODF ends fire season and regulated use.
Mailing a permit to you this week (9/29/14) won’t work.

Our forestlands are open to the public, with a free permit, for walk-in, horseback ride-in and bike-in use. Unless we receive significant* rain before October 4th, our gates will remain closed when the rifle deer season begins.
We notice cool nights and a different smell to the morning air. BUT WAIT! Fire danger remains high!
