Prince's Pine Permits
Prince’s pine grows in cool, moist areas and forms a carpet-like layer of vegetation over small areas. It is commercially harvested in the Pacific Northwest to flavor cola and root beer. Native Americans also use it as a medicinal tea.
The minimum purchase of a permit is $20. May through September is usually the best season for harvesting Prince’s pine. When harvesting, snap the plant off with a quick twist of the wrist. Leave the rhizome intact so that the plant can regenerate and be harvested again in three to five years.
