Christmas tree permits now available online

Print Article

Christmas tree permits for the 2018 season for the Flathead National Forest are now available for purchase online.

The Flathead Forest is one of four National Forests participating in offering permits online through the Open Forest system at https://openforest.fs.usda.gov/christmas-trees/forests.

Christmas tree permits purchased online will have to be printed to be valid, and are only valid for trees harvested from the Flathead National Forest. However, this program allows folks to purchase a 2018 Christmas tree permit from the comfort of home, or by using a mobile device, instead of traveling to a Forest Service office.

To purchasing a permit or for more information, visit https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/flathead/passes-permits/forestproducts/?cid=stelprdb5402370.

Traditional Christmas tree permits will still be available at local Forest Service offices, or participating vendors. The Forest Service will use feedback from the 2018 Christmas tree season to continue to refine and improve the online permit system for our Forest visitors in the future.

For more information about the Christmas tree program on the Flathead National Forest, please call 406-758-5204.
