Fourth-graders and homeschooled equivalent fourth-graders, are eligible to receive a free Christmas tree permit through the U.S. Forest Service’s Every Kid in a Park initiative. To receive their free tree permit, students need to complete an activity at www.everykidinapark.gov, print the voucher and bring it to any Forest Service office. The student needs to be present and must show a valid paper voucher or an Every Kid in a Park pass obtained from the website or participating federal agency. A mail-order form is not an option for this program.

The Idaho Panhandle National Forests offers an abundant choice of trees from which to choose. As you prepare to search for the perfect tree, be prepared for cold weather and snow. Dress warmly, carry extra food and hot drinks, and always let someone know your travel plans including destination and expected time of arrival back home. Enjoy the holiday season and your national forest!
