If you are reading this in December, it might be too late to get a permit to cut down your own live Christmas tree for this year. In Arizona, we have a voucher system for those permits, and you absolutely have to have a permit to cut down a tree in one of our national forests.
If your heart is set on a real Christmas tree your other option is to buy one from a Christmas tree farm. Those temporary lots will be springing up all over the Phoenix area.
Of course, you can never find one when you need one, so here are some lot locations. They appear here in alphabetical order.
