Shoshone Forest Christmas Tree Permits Available
Written by Andrew-Rossi on November 21, 2017
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, many families are making the annual decision – to decide between a real or an artificial tree this year.
For those who choose the experience of picking out your family’s tree from the thousands of acres in the Shoshone National Forest, Christmas tree permits are now available. They can be purchased Monday through Friday, from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm at Shoshone National Forest district offices – but they are also available for purchase at several local businesses, including all of the Good 2 Go stores in Cody; The Red Barn in Wapiti; One Stop Motorsports in Powell; the Good 2 Go Store in Ralston, and the Wea Market in Meeteetse.
According to Forest officials, a permit costs $8.00 and can be used for one tree up to 20 feet tall. But if you have a fourth grader in your family, you’re in luck – as a part of the Every Kid in a Park initiative, the Shoshone National Forest is offering one free Christmas tree permit to fourth graders with a valid paper or durable Every Kid in a Park pass. Those passes are available at www.everykidinapark.gov, and can only be redeemed at the Shoshone National Forest District Office.
