Christmas Tree Farms

Start a new holiday tradition for your family by visiting one of Tennessee’s lush tree farms that will welcome you with a rich, fragrant aroma and a bounty of seasonal delight. You don’t have to be Clark Griswold to appreciate the authentic wonder of picking out your very own Christmas tree. Rekindle fond memories and recreate traditions: a fragrant, freshly cut East Tennessee Christmas tree is one of the very best ways to celebrate the holiday season.

Many growers have items not listed such as roping and wreaths. For more information about "choose and cut" sales, retail and wholesale growers and "balled and burlapped", please check out www.picktnproducts.org for more detailed contact information.

Tennessee’s climate, soil and elevation offer the perfect place to nurture evergreens like White Pine, Norway Spruce, Virginia Pine, Leyland Cypress and Scotch Pine. Tennessee is unique for having more trees than any other state and more species of trees than all of Europe!

There are more than a dozen tree farms in the area, many of which offering additional amenities such as overnight lodging; hiking trails; and, bed and breakfast accommodations, (which is not to be confused with the other “B&B” associated with Christmas trees- “balled and burlapped”). Wreaths and garlands are also available at many locations. Most facilities are open to the public seasonally from Thanksgiving to Christmas during daylight hours. Five farms are in the immediate Knoxville area with several more in outlying counties along mountain ridges and down old valley roads that will make your adventure of getting there a big part of the fun.

Over a million Christmas trees are grown in Tennessee each year ensuring that your hand-picked tree will not only be a memorable holiday experience, but one of the freshest Christmas trees possible for you and your family.

How much you want to get involved is up to you! Some farms will do the cutting for you, if you prefer that option. Here are some recommended tips for making the best choice:

  • consider the placement area for your tree first in order to match for size

  • tap the tree trunk firmly on the ground to check for falling, dry needles

  • grip the tree limbs and pull toward the end for another test for dryness

  • remember, dry trees are bad

Picking a real tree from one of Tennessee’s Christmas tree farms will not only create a cherished new holiday tradition for your family, it will help local growers continue to keep Tennessee green and beautiful for a long time to come! As “Cousin Eddie” would say, “that's the gift that keeps on giving the whole year."
