The sale of Christmas trees will be held during working hours, Monday – Friday, 08:00 - 14:30.

The trees that will be for sale come from thinnings of forest plantations in the context of forestry operations, which are made in order to improve growth conditions and reduce competition in forest plantations.

It is recalled that felling, possession and transport of Christmas trees without the relevant permit from the Department of Forests is, in accordance with the "Forestry Law of 2012", an offence punishable by a fine of up to €5,000 or imprisonment of up to one year or both penalties together.

Private tree owners are urged to secure in advance the necessary logging and transport permits and present them to the officers of the Department of Forests for inspection, when requested. Before transporting the trees from the logging sites, they must contact the nearest forestry station and ensure that they are sealed at the bottom – cross-section – with a seal of the Department of Forests.
