Christmas Tree Permits Available Online for Bighorn National Forest
Written by Caleb Nelson on November 18, 2022
This marks the third season USDA Forest Service Christmas Tree permits have been available through Recreation.gov.
The ability to purchase permits online can be more convenient and provide another option for visitors interested in harvesting their own holiday tree. Permits are also available at all Bighorn National Forest Offices in Buffalo, Greybull, and Sheridan.
Every fourth-grade student can receive one free Christmas tree permit when they present a valid 4th-grade interagency pass at any of the Bighorn National Forest offices or by going online here.
Be sure to check the box indicating you have a 4th-grade interagency pass before purchasing your tree permit online. The Christmas tree permit is good for trees under 10 feet. A personalized paper voucher can be downloaded and printed for use at federal lands and waters locations for one year. Pass rules and instructions can be found on the program’s website.
The Forest Service is one of several federal agencies supporting the Every Kid Outdoors program. This year, kids can also participate in a Bighorn National Forest coloring contest.
Visit any of our offices or download the coloring page from our website. The contest runs through December 15, 2022. If you have questions, please contact the Powder River Ranger District 307-684-7806, Medicine Wheel Ranger District 307-765-4435, or the Supervisor’s Office and Tongue Ranger District 307-674-2600.
