Christmas tree permits now available at Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests offices+

Permits to harvest Christmas trees on the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests are now available to purchase at forest offices or online at the link.
With a National Forest Christmas Tree permit, customers are permitted to harvest up to three trees at the cost of $5 per tree. To purchase a permit in-person, visit your local ranger station office.
In addition to the cost of the permit, a small processing fee will be collected to cover the online transaction.
Fourth grade students are eligible to receive a FREE Christmas tree permit if they have an Every Kid Outdoors pass.
No special areas on the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests are designated for Christmas tree cutting. Cut your tree at least 200 feet from well–traveled roads, flowing water, campgrounds, and recreation sites, and do not harvest within designated Wilderness areas or Wild and Scenic River corridors. Select your tree from thickets and overstocked areas and choose a tree that is the right size for your needs.
