The Shasta-Trinity National Forest is located in the north center part of California.
Where is this Forest?


The Shasta-Trinity National Forest is proud to participate in the Every Kid in a Park (EKIP) Christmas Tree Program. This program allows every fourth grade student to receive one free Christmas tree permit.

To receive their free permit, students must go online and print out the EKIP voucher or present their pass to any Forest Service office that is selling permits. Parents must accompany the student to receive the permit. For more information, please call your local Forest Service Ranger Station, or the Forest Supervisor’s Office at (530) 226-2500.
