Arizona revelers are flocking to the Coconino and Kaibab National Forests to cut their own Christmas trees this year: The Coconino sold out of its 600 permits in just 4 days, and the Kaibab reported an increase in permit sales, too. The trend comes alongside a dip in sales for Flagstaff Christmas tree lots, which some owners blame on the lack of snow.
