This year calls for an extra special holiday season. One that ends with a rum-nog hangover and a stomach full of turkey, but begins with the whimsy of cutting your very own pine giant. Luckily, not only does Alberta have a ton of places to cut your own Christmas tree, the province has released a map of where you can do so.
While you could just set up an artificial evergreen, many choose to instead, don some flannel and hit Canada’s woodland areas – but not without reading the rulebook first.
The most important thing to note? First, you’ll have to apply for a Personal Use Forest Products Permit!

To be eligible for this permit you must be:
- 18 years of age or older
- A resident of Alberta
- In good standing with the Crown (relating to timber, grazing and land use)
- And be fully aware that there are risks associated with cutting down your own tree.
Second, you’ll need to head to their website.
Here, those looking to harvest a Christmas tree in Alberta can actually see where they’re able to get chop-happy this winter.
