Day 299 of 365…
As Christmas draws nearer I thought I’d highlight a few local Christmas Tree U-Cut farms around town. One in the East, one centrally located and one on the West side. I know there are lots of U-Cut Christmas Tree farms out there and this certainly isn’t a complete directory. It’s just a few family owned and operated farms that I’m familiar with and are more popular around town.
Hilltop Trees is located on the East side of town in Hockinson. This family owned tree farm is unique in they have a fixed price on all their trees. No matter what size tree you get it is $35. No looking for price tags or wondering “how tall is that one”? They offer Douglas Firs and Noble Firs and have all different sizes. They also have a nice indoor area for petting and viewing baby farm animals. Today I got to see a 4 day old baby goat. She is adorable! They are open DAILY from 9am until dark between now and Christmas.
Hilltop Trees is located at 18814 NE 139th Street, Brush Prairie, WA, 98606. You can connect with Hilltop Trees on Facebook.
Thorntons’ Treeland is a very large tree farm. They offer a wide variety of trees like Douglas Fir, Noble Fir, Fraser Fir, Balsam Fir, Grand Fir, and Nordmann Fir. Each type of tree is priced differently depending upon size. They have price tags on each tree that is available and you can get a hay ride around the property if you so desire. They also offer farm animal viewing as well as hot cocoa to warm you up. If you need help with a tree stand they also sell stands and will get your tree ready to put up as soon as you get home. Thorntons’ is also open from 9am until dark DAILY between now and Christmas.
Thorntons’ Treeland is locate at 7617 NE 119th Street, Vancouver, WA, 98662. You can connect with Thorntons’ Treeland on Facebook.
The Tree Wiseman’s
The Tree Wiseman’s tree farm is another large scale farm that’s great to wander around in. They are located on the upper West side of Clark County in Ridgefield. They specialize in large Noble Firs up to 15+ feet in height. Sometimes it can be difficult to find the truly tall trees so this is a great place to check out. They also grow Grand Fir, Douglas Fir, Fraser Fir and Nordmann Fir. They offer flat rate pricing up to certain heights and then a per foot increase over the flat rate heights. The Tree Wiseman’s is open DAILY as well between now and Christmas Eve. They open at 10am on weekdays and 8am on the weekends.
The Tree Wiseman’s is located at 26500 NE 53rd Avenue in Ridgefield, WA. You can connect with The Tree Wiseman’s on Facebook.
Each of these tree farms offers additional things beyond what is shared here. Depending upon your location I’d recommend you create a new family tradition by visiting one of these local family businesses. Make sure you visit with them as that is half the fun.
