Christmas Tree Permits

Couple putting a Christmas tree on top of a car.Christmas tree permits are now available for purchase through Dec. 31, 2020. Permits are primarily being sold online at Recreation.gov, but may also be obtained in person from local vendors. Additionally, you can purchase Christmas tree permits via the telephone from the McKenzie River, Middle Fork and Sweet Home Ranger Districts. Tree permits will not be sold in person at any of our ranger districts or offices. Cutting trees in some areas of the Willamette is prohibited, so tree hunters should check maps prior to selecting their tree and remain outside of any of the closed areas.   


Permits are $5.00 each. They allow the holder to cut one tree in designated areas; each household can purchase up to a maximum of five permits. This year, trees can be as tall as 15 feet.
