Find local Christmas tree farms here!

Whether you want to cut your own tree, pick a live tree and have it cut for you, buy a tree already cut or buy a living tree you can plant, this page provides detailed listings of Western North Carolina's choose-and-cut Christmas tree farms, places to buy pre-cut (also called pre-harvested and fresh-cut) trees, stands, sleigh rides, hay rides and related winter events and fun. Some listings are for tree farms, others are tree lots, and some only offer hay rides, sleigh rides or other winter events. READ EACH LISTING to know what each facility offers. The farms are listed further down this page, so scroll down the page! Since this service is free and open to ALL Christmas tree farms, not just those who belong to an association or pay for an ad, like almost all other websites do, this is the most complete and current listing available! I'm always looking for more to add, and to correct any inaccuracies or errors, so if you encounter any, please email me ! And beware the copycat websites - from Monny-bloggers to out-and-out plagiarists, they simply copy my work; they are just out to make a quick buck. Since 2004, I am make updates and corrections every day! (let me know if you see copycats!)

If it has just snowed; see this page about how to make snocones  from real snow!  Your kids will love it!

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 - many farms and lots are selling out of trees early this year - Call 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 Western North Carolina 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

And if you know of one I missed and want to add it or correct the information, please let me know! There are affiliate links on this page. Read our disclosure policy to learn more.

Directions: From Boone - North on 194 off 421; go 12 miles to farm. Don't turn off 194 until you get to the farm. There is nothing like visiting a Choose and Cut Christmas Tree Farm and picking and cutting your own live Christmas tree. You know it's what you want, and you know it's fresh. Your biggest decision is choosing your "perfect tree" from among the thousands. At RRR Tree Farm - Laurel Knob we've seen families jump off the Choose and Cut Hay Ride , point at a tree and say "I want that one." Most commonly, however, they'll spend hours choosing. However, it's not unusual for them to come back to that very first one. It's just fun to meander among the trees on the great search. Once the decision is made and the tree is marked with the tag we provide, we encourage you to cut it down with a hand saw (bring your own or we'll provide one). We have staff in the field to cut it for you if you prefer. The tree is then carried to the bailer and bailed for you to take home. We will load the tree on a trailer and take it to your vehicle. Y'all then get back on the hay ride to go back to the Christmas Shop to get some more hot cider.
