It’s time to make holiday memories again and head outdoors for that perfect tree. Christmas tree permits will go on sale at Olympic National Forest offices on November 12.

Visitors can come to the offices in Olympia, Quilcene or Quinault and purchase their $5 permit to cut their own Christmas tree on National Forest System land. Families with 4th graders who have an Every Kid Outdoors Pass can get a free cutting permit.  The child must be present when picking up the permit.

Informational material and a map showing where to harvest your tree will be included with the permit.

A new requirement this year is that cut trees cannot be taller than 15 feet.

Stop by one of our offices and get your permit.  And then, start making holiday memories of your own!
