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 Eastern and Coastal 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! Help me keep this page complete and up to date, by reporting any corrections needed or suggesting farms to add!

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!

Pandemic Tips:

  • 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 Eastern and Coastal 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!

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 May 2022

May 2022: 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 (if they can get a Santa) 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; hours, tree supplies, prices, everything is changing daily!

And next Spring, you'll want to take your children to a free Easter egg hunt - see our companion website to find a local Easter Egg hunt - ( . It's the ONLY website that is updated every Easter for all Easter Egg hunts in the U.S.
