A TM66 permit is valid for 30 days from the time of purchase. You can get 1 permit per 30-day period for each type of product. For example, in a 30-day period you can get 3 permits: 1 for firewood, 1 for Christmas trees and 1 for transplants.
Each Forest Area has designated areas where firewood or Christmas tree cutting is permitted. When you purchase a permit, you will get a map showing where you may harvest timber.
Rules and Conditions
To obtain a TM66 permit, you must be:
- over 18 years of age
- a resident of Alberta
- in good standing with the Crown relating to timber, grazing and land use.
Christmas trees and transplanted trees must be under 2.5 meters in height.
TM66 permits are available at some, not all, Environment and Sustainable Resource Development offices, and from private vendors. Some private vendors only issue permits for the purpose of cutting Christmas trees.
