Written by Andrew-Rossi on November 3, 2022
It’s beginning to look a bit like Christmas – and now families can start planning for it too, as Shoshone National Forest announced the first day to get Christmas tree permits.
Few things inspire the spirit of the season, like the sight and smell of a Christmas tree. Soon, many people who make obtaining a tree a family tradition can take the necessary steps to find their yuletide tree and bring it home.
Starting Thursday, November 10th, Shoshone National Forest Christmas tree permits will be available at Cody, Lander, and Dubois district offices.
Christmas tree permits will be available for purchase Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Shoshone National Forest district offices.
Permits will also be available for purchase online by visiting www.Recreation.gov.
Several different vendors sell Christmas tree permits for Shoshone and other national forests. You can find an updated list of local vendors and additional information on obtaining permits on the U.S. Forest Service website.
To purchase a Christmas tree permit online, go to “Shoshone National Forest Christmas Tree Permits.”
It is important to ensure you are purchasing a permit for the correct national forest. There is an additional $2.50 service fee when purchasing a tree permit online, and you must be able to print your purchased permit.
Also, Shoshone National Forest is pleased to continue the Every Kid Outdoors initiative – a nationwide program to help educate the next generation of conservationists with free trees.
All fourth graders are eligible to receive a fourth-grade pass that allows free access to federal lands and waters across the country for an entire year. In addition, in support of this initiative, every fourth grader who presents a fourth-grade pass or paper voucher at any Shoshone National Forest district office will receive a permit for a free Christmas tree.
