Family carrying cut tree thru the snowy woodsChristmas tree permits sale dates for the Kaibab National Forest will announced later in 2024. Permits will be sold online in order to allow members of the public to enjoy the popular holiday tradition of cutting one’s own tree in the forest.

To order an online permit via Recreation.gov, you will need to create an online account. A small transaction fee will be applied to your purchase.

The permit is only good for a tree on the ranger district for which it was purchased and can’t be used to cut a tree on a different district. No refunds will be made, even if weather conditions prevent access to cutting areas.

Individuals who purchase permits will need to download a map either from this page or via recreation.gov showing designated cutting area along with additional tree cutting instructions.
