The green areas on the state map below show the boundaries of the one national forest and two national grasslands that are within the boundaries of the Rocky Mountain Region inside South Dakota (everything south and east of the thick orange line in the northwest corner of the state). To view Christmas Tree Program cutting information for US Forest Service lands located in South Dakota, move your cursor over a national forest or grassland you are interested in. Once you are on top of the national forest or grassland, a filled-in map outline and tool tip will appear. Click the cursor on the green map outline and a link will open to that national forest or grassland's Christmas Tree Program Information webpage.
 
NOTE: The region's primary Christmas tree cutting dates this year will be December 5-13, 2015, which means that all tree cutting areas in our region must be open between those dates. Tree cutting dates will vary from one cutting area to another. Some areas allow cutting as early as Thanksgiving and some allow cutting until the end of the year. You will have to check with your area's Christmas Tree Program Information webpage for exact cutting dates!
