Find your Christmas tree in the national forest
VERMONT- Forest Service officials in Vermont are welcoming the public to select and cut a Christmas tree on the Green Mountain National Forest with the purchase of a $5 permit. Permits are now available for purchase either online (an additional $2.50 service fee applies) or in person at GMNF offices in Manchester or Rochester.
Christmas trees for personal use may be cut on the GMNF. Purchasing permits in person can be done by calling one of the offices, located in Manchester or Rochester. Please confirm that office locations are open by making an appointment prior to travel. Two permits are allowed per household per year. Trees obtained under the Christmas tree permit may not be resold.
In support of the Every Kid Outdoors initiative, this year the Forest Service will again provide fourth grade students with a free Christmas tree voucher by registering at https://everykidoutdoors.gov. Fourth graders who register must present a printed voucher to redeem a Christmas tree permit.
