Tips:

  • If the name of the farm is blue with an underline; that's a link to their website. Click on it for the most current hours and information.
  • ALWAYS call the farm or store BEFORE YOU GO to confirm their supply, their hours and whether they have trees, are allowing choose-and-cut or just precut trees; and which attractions or winter activities are available.  All three can change during the short Christmas season, due to weather, demand and the farmer's business conditions! Farms get sold, shut down or run out of trees, and they don't all update me every day, let alone every year. For more tips to make your trip fun and successful, click here !
    DON'T DRIVE OUT THERE IF YOU CAN'T REACH THEM (by phone, email or find current information on their website or Facebook page!
  • And please tell the farmer you visit in Riverside County, California) that you found their farm here! I need the farmers to realize that you found them here so that they will keep their information up to date!
  • After Christmas, click here to find how how and where to easily recycle or dispose of your Christmas tree! And to recycle used, broken or old Christmas lights and electronics See this page for local options to easily recycle your Christmas holiday lights

    Comments from a visitor on December 14, 2008: "I love Sand Haven Farms and have bee buying my Christmas trees their for a few decades since back when they used to be in Ontario, Calif., if anyone remembers that.. If you want a REAL LIVING Christmas tree ..one that can't become a fire hazard...actual living with roots ready to be transplanted in January.. THIS IS WHERE YOU GO!!!!!!(951)789-8450 In fact, they allow the tree (in it's pot) to remain and tap root into the soil while still in the pot, and they are well irrigated standing tall waiting for your approval until you walk through after November22. Attendants will cut the big root flush with the bottom of the pot, carry it to your car and prepare it for its ride to its new adoptive home. To use for Christmas, I just give it a good watering a day before taking into the house, then drape the pot with plastic like a diaper in case, then continue with fabric, then presents!!! It won't turn orange or drop its needles. Avoid "topping" it just for the sake of fitting a star on top. NEVER TOP A TREE. Be creative as to how to fasten one up there if it isn't a perfect fit. All you have to do is LOVE it, know its species, and pick a spot to transplant it first week of January. There are many sources online to help you with proper tree transplanting...there IS a right and wrong way. I recommend NOT choosing the tree space in front of your home because that is making a gift of your tree to your city. They will own it, and in a few years you will notice a violent explosion in yourself when you look out your window to see a City gorilla out there hacking away on it as they go down the street. (Don't ask) One of mine grew to 2 and 1/2 stories pretty quickly and I had planted it on the tree space. Consider a spot on your backyard that will shade your house or a window....a spot away from the foundation and roof edge. The back yard keeps the tree totally under YOUR control and away from front yard gas lines and plumbing. I know. I wish you could keep them indoors too, but be a good parent and do as you must and look forward to NEXT Christmas and plan for THAT tree's spot. If you don't have more room, think of a friend or nearby relative who's willing and able to have a nice well-started tree (this is no spindly thing like Cities or shopping centers plant...this is a sizeable REAL TREE). The experience alone, is a GIFT. .."
