Christmas Tree Farms

The crunch of snow beneath your feet … The woodsy scent of fresh-cut pine, spruce, and fir … The mission: to find the perfect Christmas tree, the one that your whole family agrees should grace your home. In New Hampshire, stopping by a lovingly tended, family-run Christmas-tree farm to seek and find the perfect evergreen is a beloved ritual.

New Hampshire's Christmas-tree farmers labor all year in preparation for an intense, brief holiday harvest season that brings in $4 million in agricultural revenues. There are more than 200 Christmas-tree growers in New Hampshire, and at farms scattered statewide, you can cut your own Christmas tree. And that's just the start. Our farms sell pre-cut trees, wreaths, roping, and other evergreen accents, too. And many treat families to a complete Christmas-tree experience that becomes the stuff of shared lifelong memories. Sleigh rides, reindeer visits, caroling, hot mulled cider, chilling with Mrs. Claus … you'll be in the holiday spirit in no time at all.

The New Hampshire Christmas Tree Promotion Board maintains an online directory of cut-your-own Christmas-tree farms. Balsam and Fraser fir trees are most readily available, but you'll also find Douglas fir, Concolor fir, blue spruce, red spruce, and a hybrid developed by an ingenious New Hampshire tree farmer: Fralsam fir.

And if you can't get to New Hampshire to choose your own tree, you can still decorate with a fragrant evergreen that grew up in the Granite State. Just contact one of these farms that ship Christmas trees.
