Before you head out, get a free permit and map of allowed areas!
The Ministry of Forests has free online Christmas Tree permit forms which will immediately send your permit right to your e-mail!
Look for the little Christmas Tree Icons on the map for areas under powerlines where the permit is valid! Note that the areas marked in Sechelt and Roberts Creek areas are full of blackberry and broom, but the area in Halfmoon Bay near Trout Lake has lots of great trees!
