Christmas Tree Farms in Southeast Michigan

Searching for the right tree for your family? These places near Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne counties will spruce up your holiday spirit in 2015.

Christmas Tree Farms in Southeast Michigan

The holiday season is not complete without the perfect tree to decorate with ornaments, lights and ribbon. Throughout southeast Michigan, there are tons of tree farms and lots to help make this Christmas a special one. Check out the different spots offering fresh pre-cut and “u-cut” trees. While you’re there, you may even see Santa and warm up with hot chocolate or apple cider.

Before heading out, visit the Michigan Christmas Tree Association for tips and additional information. Here are a few of ours:

  • Most tree farms have saws on hand, and they’ll trim and package your tree so it’s easy to take home. Consider bringing a few bungee cords if you’d like, but otherwise, you’re covered.
  • Farms have different season start/end dates. Most open the weekend after Thanksgiving. We’ve tried to provide that info where possible, but it’s always best to call ahead.
  • Prices and tree types will vary depending on the farm.
  • Some farms don’t accept credit or debit cards; not all have electricity. Be sure to bring cash or a checkbook, just in case. Call ahead if you have any questions.
  • Many offer activities like bonfires, hayrides and food – usually on the weekends. Again, check ahead to be sure.
