The Kenai National Wildlife Refuge is all set to open to the public for its annual Christmas tree cutting on Thanksgiving, giving anyone who wants to the chance to take a tree from the refuge until Christmas.

Trees from the 150 million acre refuge can't be sold to anyone else, have to be cut with hand tools and can't be taller than 20 feet. There's also a limit of one tree per household.

Officials with the refuge said trees may be taken anywhere except within 150 feet of a road, lake, stream, trail, campground or picnic area. The Refuge Headquarters, Visitor Center and Ski Hill Road areas are also off limits.

For more information, you can call the refuge's office at 907-262-7021.
