Christmas Tree Permits Available
Written by Andrew-Rossi on November 20, 2018
Christmas Tree permits will be available this week from both the Shoshone National Forest and the Bureau of Land Management, giving families several locations to choose from to get that perfect tree.
Shoshone National Forest Christmas tree permits can be purchased online or in person. Officials point out that Christmas tree permits purchased online must be printed to be valid, and you must have the hardcopy permit with you when cutting your tree.
Christmas tree permits are still available for in-person purchase Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm at the Shoshone National Forest district office in Cody, as well as at businesses such as the Good 2 Go Stores; the Red Barn on the North Fork Highway; One Stop Motorsports in Powell; and the Wea Market in Meeteetse. One permit costs $8.00 and can be used for one tree up to 20 feet tall.
Additionally, Wyoming’s BLM offices are selling Christmas tree permits for the 2018 season. Permits must be obtained in-person during normal business hours from the Cody Field Office on Blackburn Street. Permits are $ 5-7.50 per tree and five permits are allowed per household. Permittees will be provided with maps and directions, as the BLM has set aside designated areas for harvesting Christmas trees.
