Cutting a Christmas Tree this Holiday Season?
Yukon householders can cut a maximum of two Christmas trees from Yukon public land for the holidays. When looking for your Christmas tree, please respect property rights and do not cut trees within municipal boundaries.
You can cut a tree anywhere in Yukon on vacant public land. A map of Fish Lake Road is provided here because historically, this road has been a popular area for cutting Christmas trees near Whitehorse. However, over time, the amount of available public land near Fish Lake has decreased. To find out exactly where you can get your tree there without going onto private land, consult this map:
To identify Yukon public land, have a look at the Yukon Lands Viewer.
... and have a safe and happy holiday season!
Personal Firewood Permits
The Yukon Forest Management Branch would like to remind Yukoners that a Forest Resources Permit is required to cut firewood for personal use. Failure to have a permit or carry it with you when cutting or transporting wood could result in a fine.
This permit is free and authorizes the cutting of 25 m3 (11 cords) or less of firewood for uses such as heating your home.
Apply for your permit at your local Compliance Monitoring & Inspections office. Permits are often issued over the counter at the time of application.
