“For many families, venturing into a National Forest to cut their Christmas tree for the holidays is a treasured tradition carried on for generations,” said Ann Niesen, Acting Deputy Forest Supervisor.  “For families creating new traditions, a trip to their local forest to cut their own Christmas tree may be a thrilling experience as they discover the joy of hiking through the forest in search of the perfect holiday centerpiece.”

The Forest Service decided to move permit sales to Recreation.gov as an added convenience for visitors, as well as provide an alternative to in-person transactions at offices that may remain closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 


To purchase a Christmas Tree permit, visit Recreation.gov and search for Superior National Forest Christmas Tree Permits.  It is important to carefully read the overview and need-to-know information prior to purchasing the permit.  Visitors will also need to set up or login to a Recreation.gov account to complete the transaction.
