Holiday Tree permits on sale at National Forest offices
It’s the most wonderful time of the year… time to visit your nearest national forest to find the perfect holiday tree for your home!
Christmas tree permits are available at National Forest offices and selected vendors throughout the Pacific Northwest for $5 each.
Each permit allows the holder to cut one tree in designated areas; each household can purchase up to a maximum of five permits.
For permit purchasing locations, contact your local national forest office (for a directory of USDA Forest Service offices in Washington and Oregon, visit: https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/r6/about-region/?cid=stelprdb5341313).
As part of the national Every Kid in a Park initiative, all fourth-graders are eligible for a free holiday tree permit from their USDA Forest Service office, for use on their local national forest.
