Selecting a tree will be a similar process as in the past, but with a few social distancing measures added in. You will have 3 options when selecting your Christmas tree.

Option 1

Select a tree from our pre-cut lot in the main yard.

Christmas trees will be lined up with visible pricing so you can make your best selection. You will not need to step inside a building during this process.

1. Walk
Walk to the pre-cut tree section in our main lot.

2. Select a Tree
Choose a White Pine, Scotch Pine or Fraser Fir Christmas tree.

3. Pay for your tree
Visit the nearby mobile pay station outside.

Option 2

Walk the trail to the on-site Christmas tree lot or take a tram.

We have opened up a back field on our property with plenty of White Pine, Scotch Pine and Fraser Fir trees. It is a leisurely six minute walk from the parking area to the tree field taking this walking path. We will have new signs up to help you find your way. If you prefer to take the tram, that option is available. Saws and pull carts will be regularly sanitized throughout the day.

Option 3

Take a tram to our Christmas field across the street.

We will make an effort to limit the number of passengers on each tram to allow for adequate spacing between seats. You will be able to select Fraser fir or Economy Fraser fir (priced at $50.00) tree. We recommend you wear a mask on the tram. Saws, pull carts and the tram will be regularly sanitized throughout the day.

Our trams will transport customers to a new satellite field. This field is brimming with thousands of wonderful, never before seen, Fraser fir Christmas trees. These trees range in height from six feet to ten feet, and provide a great selection of trees to cut.

About Payment & Checkout

We accept all major credit cards. Your tree will have a tag on it which you can take to any of the checkout stations for payment.

We have implemented new mobile pay stations in each tree field and in our front lot area to reduce foot traffic and waiting time. Find an employee with the device to make your purchase in the tree field as you pick out your tree or visit the mobile pay station in the front lot.

Complimentary Carts

Complimentary carts are available to assist taking your tree to your vehicle.

About the Trams

We have 6 tractor-pulled trams in operation on the farm, one of them is handicap accessible. Look for signs as you park your vehicle for tram pickup, drop off, and wait times.

Please note: for customer safety due to darkness, our trams will stop transporting customers to the tree fields at 4:00 PM CST.
