That is correct. You can cut your own Christmas Tree for $5 bucks in the White Mountain National Forest of New Hampshire! The Bartlett Inn has a tradition of cutting our own Christmas Tree each holiday season. Usually we find a nice tree on our own property but this year we just could not find one that had a good shape so Innkeeper Nick and his family went to the Ranger Station on the Kancamagus Highway in Conway, NH and paid just $5 to cut our own tree. This is a great deal on Christmas trees that can cost from $20 – $120 dollars. The Bartlett Inn prefers to cut a less traditional tree: It goes by many a name; Charlie Brown Tree, Stick Tree, Pencil Tree or the real name Fir Balsam. It is fragrant and grows with larger spaces between branches than trees grown on a tree farm. It is not as full and bushy as a farm grown tree but it has benefits as the space between branches allows ornaments to be seen and dangle freely and it has an open airy feel. We made a point to make and buy very light ornaments as the branches are not very thick or stiff.
