Christmas Tree Permits

Christmas Tree Permits Available for Purchase Online

Christmas tree permits are available seasonally at Recreation.gov! Christmas tree permits purchased online will have to be printed to be valid. However, this program allows you to purchase your Christmas tree permit from the comfort of your own home, or by using your mobile device, instead of traveling to a Forest Service office. You can learn about purchasing your permit and gathering your Christmas tree here. Traditional Christmas tree permits will also be available at a number of participating vendors.

Cutting location maps:

Cutting areas are located within national forest lands in the eastern portions of Pierce, King, Snohomish, Skagit and Whatcom counties. Call your local forest service district office for more detailed information.

Permits cost $10 each for a tree up to 15 feet. The permits are nonrefundable. The supply of permits at all locations is limited. Once the supply is exhausted, no more permits will be available, so it is advised to call and verify their availability ahead of time.

Plan to purchase a Sno-Park parking permit if the trip includes parking in a designated Sno-Park lot. When at a trailhead requiring a fee, the Northwest Forest Pass will need to be displayed on the vehicle dashboard. Get a tree early before snow falls as most trees are reached by narrow, unplowed mountain roads. High-clearance vehicles are often required for forest roads along with tire chains and a shovel. Check ranger stations for road and weather information or go to www.fs.usda.gov/goto/mbs/road-trails.
