British Columbians interested in cutting a Christmas tree should obtain their permit online or contact their local Ministry of Forests office or FrontCounter B.C. office.
Ministry offices can provide details about specific cutting requirements and approved harvest areas. Free use permits are provided for personal use only.
The ministry’s Christmas tree website — www.for.gov.bc.ca/mof/xmastrees.htm — provides links to online Christmas tree permits, FrontCounter B.C. and district office contact information, and the B.C. Christmas Tree Council’s website containing a list of tree farms and U-cuts around the province.
