how and where to easily recycle or dispose of your Christmas tree!

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 Hawaii'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! Help me keep this page complete and up to date, by
reporting any corrections needed or suggesting farms
My Christmas Tree guide has photos and descriptions of
more than 2 dozen varieties of Christmas trees, along with a simple comparison chart!
And beware the copycat websites - from Mommy-bloggers to out-and-out plagiarists, they simply copy my work and rarely update; they are just out to make a
quick buck. Since 2004, I've made updates and corrections every day!
If it has just snowed; see
this page about how to make snocones from real snow!
Your kids will love it!
- Keep in mind that state government COVID dictates may force many farms to cancel Santa visits, hayrides, etc. this year. 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 or have COVID-19 requirements - 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 Hawaii 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!
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.
Updates for October 2021
October 2021: In a normal year, most Christmas tree farms are open up to Christmas Eve; but this year many farms are selling out
of trees and closing early for the season, and some decided not to open at all, due to all the COVID19 restrictions. Some are only open on weekends, or
only have hayrides, Santa visits and events on weekends. Demand will be high since people have been locked down and not allowed to do much
- but you CAN go to farms. And a farm may be the only place you can take your kids to see Santa. Of course, check with the farm BEFORE YOU GO!
And next Spring, you'll want to take your children to a free Easter egg hunt

Now there IS a cut-your-own tree farm in Hawaii. AND, there is a Christmas tree ship.
Yep, a Ship. Refrigerated container ships started crossing the Pacific in the
1960's. Now, usually on Thanksgiving day, a ship arrives with trees.
Still, many Hawaiians use Norfolk Island pines, which are common there (although
they were not native - they came from another South Pacific island).
Many visit local nurseries and pick their choice of Norfolk
Island Pines from the native crops. Others buy potted specimens to decorate and
illuminate. A few even poach them from local forest reserves.

Prices in 2011 for our Christmas trees and wreaths are the same as last year!
Norfolk trees start at $40, plus taxes, and
trees start at $60, plus taxes. Our locally made
Christmas wreaths start at $25. . Notes: although the branches of the
Norfolk Pine are spaced farther apart than other species, the trees are
hypoallergenic and the needles don't shed; lasting a much longer time
than other trees.
A visitor writes: "We are a military family stationed
in Hawaii. Originally from Washington State we are accustomed to cutting
down our own FRESH Christmas tree every year, so when we moved to Hawaii
we thought we were going to be stuck with getting a fake tree like
everyone else here. We were so happy to find Helemano Farms last year
after searching the internet. The farm is near the Dole Pineapple
Plantation and the family is very helpful in assisting with cutting down
the tree and loading them in the car. We highly recommend this farm. The
trees are beautiful and last for a very long time.
Here is a link to a newspaper article from last year.
Very happy to
find your website. We were looking for a pumpkin patch and you showed us
that there are 3. Thank you so much. "
