How It Works

The same permits you have been purchasing for years at your local BLM office are now online.

You are always welcome to visit or call your office for all your permitting needs.

Permits are required to cut and remove forest products from BLM land. To facilitate this process, the BLM has initiated a website in several states that allows the public to purchase a fuelwood permit or Christmas trees on the internet for certain field offices.

To purchase a permit you will be asked a series of questions which will collect information that is required for all BLM issued permits online and over the counter.

You will have the opportunity to review the permit and its terms and conditions before finalizing this transaction through a secure government payment site (

If you agree to the terms and conditions you will then enter your credit/debit card information in All purchased permits are final; no refunds will be granted.

Your valid permit will then be emailed to you.

To start the process, please select the state in which you want to harvest the forest product.
