7 Places to Buy a Christmas Tree in Vancouver, WA

By AK Timber in Seasonal

Weather is unpredictable, especially in the Vancouver area. You never know when something is going to happen that will prevent you from getting your chores or To Do List done. Last year, a family wasn’t able to get a Christmas tree because they waited too long and the bad weather prevented them from getting the kind of tree they wanted. Do not be the person that has to settle for the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree. Instead, start shopping early. When you got a Christmas Tree farm where you can cut down your own tree, it will last the entire season.

Take a look at some of the farms that offer this service:

All of the trees here are meticulously groomed and cared for, ensuring that whichever one you pick, you will have a tree that lasts a long time.

The trees at Fischer’s U-Cut Christmas Tree Farm are absolutely gorgeous, especially if you are looking for a Turkish Fir tree in Vancouver, WA. They also sell absolutely beautiful Nobles and Grand Fir trees too. Each tree is hand tended to so you know that they are the highest quality. Any trees that don’t meet their standards are used for the various crafting classes they have or for wreaths and garland, which you can also purchase. Even the stumps are used for firewood.

Make sure to give yourself plenty of time because you are going to need it to look at everything they have to offer. Consider signing up for one of their classes as well, especially the ones where you can make your own decorations.

Noble fir trees are really some of the biggest stars in the Christmas tree world. They are full, lush, green, and

extremely fragrant. Not only that but they tend to stay alive a lot longer than other types of trees.

For the family that is looking for an experience, but maybe not one that lasts all day, the Lone Cedar Tree Farm has Christmas trees that will match any style. Trees range from small (4 feet) to larger (12 feet and over).

It’s really simple: you park in their parking lot, find the tree you want, cut it down (or have someone cut it down for you), shake and bale the tree, and get on your way. They’ll even help you load your tree.

If it gets too cold out there, make sure to take some time to warm your hands by the fire.

If you are looking for a tree that is large and ready to be decorated with hundreds of decorations and yards of garland, then you might want to head over to Tree Wisemans. They specialize in growing trees that are taller, some even going up to 15 or 16 feet. These trees are specially taken care of so that they are healthy and ready for cutting – they aren’t the “freaks” that grew a little bit taller than the rest. Choose from Douglas-Fir, Fraser, Grand, and Noble.

Services to their trees include flocking, fire retarding, and baling. They will also help you attach the tree to your car.

People love to come here because of cleanliness and the friendliness of the staff that really brings in the Christmas season. Espresso and hot chocolate on weekends are available on weekends.
