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 Southeastern New Mexico'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

- 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

Christmas on the Pecos River
is a 50-minute tour that sets sail 12-15 times per night between 5:30 pm
and 9:30 pm from Thanksgiving night to New Year's Eve. Tours depart from
the Pecos River Village, a quaint, turn-of-the-century park that is
transformed into a wonderland of sparkling lights and delights. Wander
through a gallery full of gifts created by local artists and enjoy holiday
refreshments at the Pecos River Village before and after your tour.
Traditionally tours sell out quickly, especially on Thanksgiving Weekend,
Fridays and Saturdays in December, and Christmas Day. (Tours are not offered
on Christmas Eve.) The event has grown steadily over the years with
participation increasing from 7,500 guests in 1994 to 10,500 guests in 1995
