Christmas Tree Tags Sold Out on Eldorado, Still Available on Other National Forests in California

Contact(s): Jennifer Chapman, 5306225061

The Eldorado National Forest just sold the last Christmas tree tags at the Georgetown Ranger Station. All other offices on the forest are also sold out.  

Local tree farms offer a similar experience and are listed on the El Dorado County Christmas Tree Growers website. Christmas tree permits and tree tags are also still available on the Plumas, Lassen, Mendocino, Six Rivers, Shasta-Trinity, and Klamath National Forests.   

A Christmas Tree Cutting Map will be provided to all permit holders and is required to be in the permittee's possession when cutting in the Eldorado National Forest. This map indicates areas of the forest where cutting is permitted. Permit holders should only drive vehicles on National Forest System roads, or park vehicles within one car length from the road. 

Please follow permit guidelines for responsible collection, including respecting private property and not trespassing when entering or leaving National Forest lands. Visitors should check for seasonal road closures and be prepared to walk into a cutting area to find a tree. No off-road vehicle travel is allowed.
