Updates for the 2022 Tower Family Christmas Tree Farm
As we move into our 30th year of selling, we are returning to our roots – both figuratively and literally. We will ONLY be selling our homegrown Christmas Trees which include White Pine, Balsam Firs, and Norway Spruce. Since we will NOT be selling any pre-cut Fraser Firs, we will also not be providing wreaths and swags. As we move into this new stage and as we get closer to retirement, we are finalizing our plans for selling our homegrown trees. We will be sending updates late summer in 2022. 

**In response to questions as to why we sold out of Christmas trees so quickly, let us explain:

1. Our Fraser Fir supplier was limited on supply and thus reduced the count of trees shipped out to their customers (us).

2. In processing the trees that were shipped, we discovered that many of them were dropping needles leaving the tips of branches bare. Over 100 trees (15%) were culled for safety reasons.

3. All told, our inventory was 48% of what we originally ordered for 2021.

We truly are sorry for the inconvenience this year. We did our best to meet the standards set on earlier seasons but was unable to overcome the supply shortages presented in 2021. Please accept our apologies.

2021 Tower Family Christmas Trees Information

 Hard to believe, this is Tower Family Christmas Tree's 29th year of being open! Every year, we try to streamline things, but also keep it the same simple tree farm you have gotten to know and love over the years.


This year you will need an appointment to enter the farm. This will help us with traffic flow. Each vehicle will need to sign up for a time slot. A time slot doesn't guarantee a tree. Please click on the link below. Thanks for your cooperation.



Here are a few tips to help you have fun and pick out a great Christmas tree:

  • We only accept cash and checks. NO CREDIT CARDS, VENMO
  • Remember if you pick a pre-cut tree, you must take it home with you that day. 
  • Norway Spruces are good for less than 2 weeks in the house.  The trees are labeled with tags. 
  • We have no balled trees.
  • Measure your ceiling. Subtract a few inches from this because of your tree stand. Now you know the max height of a tree you can get. We have measuring sticks on the farm to help you too.
  • Feel free to bring your tree stand with you to make sure your trunk fits in. If it doesn't, we'd be more than happy to trim the trunk so it will fit.
  • Tagging of trees is no longer available for 2021. Only until November 11 each year. 
  • We are also accepting donations for Love Chapel and all our tips are given to Love Chapel
  • Also, Ed has made a few chainsaw carvings that are available for a donation to Love Chapel.
