Christmas Tree Farm Roundup

What's your tree style? Do you favor a robust, towering Tennenbaum or the scrawny, charming "Charlie Brown"?

Me? I'm a stable Mable midcentury type: all the tinsel all the time. Solid gold star on top.

No matter what your style is, you have to agree that there'x nothing like heading out on a winter's day with people you love to chop down a tree. The air is crisp, the thermoses are steaming with aromatic coco.

Here's where to get the trees you need in our neck of the woods.

Skykomish-Snohomish River Valley

These beautiful river valleys of the Cascades are full of silt, thanks to the rich river lowlands. The trees here are pretty much what you think of when you think of the Pacific Northwest: tall, noble, and hearty. Pack a mug of coco or cider and get your scarf. It's time to make some Instagram-worthy memories.

Stillaguamish-Sauk River Valleys

Say you shop at Filson and have a mega truck. You like to get out into the further reaches of the PNW to fell your favorite piney trophy with a handsaw. Good for you!

The Stillaguamish- Sauk river valleys are the place to visit. Surrounded by verdant, foggy foothills, this is the sort of place where it's good to get muddy. It's all in a day's work.

Donna's Trees

Located in Bothell, Donna's is a short jaunt from Seattle. If you're an urban type and don't care for the remote excursion, this may be the best bet for you. Drive up to the lot, pick out your tree and call it a day.

Forest Service Road

Did you know that's it's legal to cut trees on forest service lands? It is! You must get a permit first. We have plenty of forest service land and permits are just $10 for a 15-foot tree. Finding your own tree int he woods is a pretty cool way to spend a short Northwest winter day.
