Choose-and-cut Christmas trees are the freshest of fresh trees!

Choosing and cutting your own Christmas tree is a wonderful outing to begin your Christmas season. Bring your family and friends to experience the fun and excitement of a working farm where you can find your perfect tree, and enjoy pumpkin patches, hay rides, wreaths, gift shops, farm animals, school tours, breathe some fresh air, and many other offerings.

Bring home a healthy, fresh grown Christmas tree from a local farm.

Our proud members invite you to explore our website, call or e-mail, check us out on the web, Facebook or other social media but most encouragingly come on out and visit the farm. We are confident you will return!

Real trees make scents!

​If you are considering starting your own Christmas tree farm, full-time or as a hobby, it will be rewarding to see your hard work come to life. As with any farming endeavor, Christmas tree farming requires smart planning, efficient management, a dedicated application of information, determination and good old work. There is no better organization than the Southern Christmas Tree Association to become a member of when considering such an operation, implementing farming practices or increasing your knowledge base of this rewarding industry. Sharing experience counts at SCTA.
