Are you getting sick of using the same artificial Christmas tree year after year?
Or maybe you just don’t want to pay a crazy amount to get a real one from a tree lot.
Either way, it might be the year to go out and cut down your own Christmas tree and it’s always best to do something legally.
If you want to cut down your own tree this year, you can obtain a permit online to do so in almost all areas of B.C.
