It’s that time of year! Christmas tree permits for the Wallowa-Whitman National Forests are now available to purchase at your local Forest Service office.

Permits are valid on National Forest System lands only, and do not authorize tree cutting on private, state, or other federally managed lands.

Permits cost $5.00 each and are limited to five per household. Tree permits and forest maps are available during regular office hours, Monday through Friday at any Forest Service office.

Again this year, all fourth graders are eligible for a free tree permit through the national Every Kid in a Park initiative. In order for students to receive a free tree permit, they must present a valid paper voucher printed from the Every Kid in a Park website. Just visit www.everykidinapark.gov and follow instructions to obtain and print the paper voucher. Then, bring the paper voucher with you to your local Forest Service office to claim the free permit. Students must be present to pick up the free permit. These free permits can only be issued through your Forest Service office and will not be available through local vendors who sell permits.
