Find local Christmas tree farms here!

Whether you want to cut your own tree, pick a live tree and have it cut for you, buy a tree already cut or buy a living tree you can plant, this page provides detailed listings of Chicagoland, Illinois's choose-and-cut Christmas tree farms, places to buy pre-cut (also called pre-harvested and fresh-cut) trees, stands, sleigh rides, hay rides and related winter events and fun. Some listings are for tree farms, others are tree lots, and some only offer hay rides, sleigh rides or other winter events. READ EACH LISTING to know what each facility offers. The farms are listed further down this page, so scroll down the page! Since this service is free and open to ALL Christmas tree farms, not just those who belong to an association or pay for an ad, like almost all other websites do, this is the most complete and current listing available! I'm always looking for more to add, and to correct any inaccuracies or errors, so if you encounter any, please email me!

Tips:

  • If the name of the farm is blue with an underline; that's a link to their website. Click on it for the most current hours and information.
  • ALWAYS call the farm or store BEFORE YOU GO to confirm their supply, their hours and whether they have trees, are allowing choose-and-cut or just precut trees; and which attractions or winter activities are available.  All three can change during the short Christmas season, due to weather, demand and the farmer's business conditions! Farms get sold, shut down or run out of trees, and they don't all update me every day, let alone every year. For more tips to make your trip fun and successful, click here!
    DON'T DRIVE OUT THERE IF YOU CAN'T REACH THEM BY PHONE OR EMAIL!
  • The dates indicate when I last received an update, no date means it may be years old!
  • And please tell the farmer you visit in Chicagoland, Illinois that you found their farm here! I need the farmers to realize that you found them here so that they will keep their information up to date!

And if you know of one I missed and want to add it or correct the information, please let me know!

Directions: Three miles North of McHenry on Illinois 31, then one-half mile up Pioneer Road. At Pioneer Tree Farm we raise our trees organically, and use no pesticides when we have to contend with weeds and other tree pests. Our motivation is love of nature -- trees, wildlife, weather, the land -- and what we sell is an experience, not necessarily the "perfect tree". Everything else is much like old times. As you enjoy walking around to look for your tree, we hope you will enjoy the country air and the diversity of vegetation on our tree farm, perhaps see some wildlife, and have fun with other friendly people! Ten percent of tree sales is donated to the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County, and most of the workers are volunteers from the Defenders. Wagon rides to and from the pines, tree shaking, and baling are included at no extra charge. Hot coffee and cocoa (both Fair Trade) are available in the Warming House. Hand saws are also provided, or bring your own (no chain saws or axes, please). Handcrafted holiday items are available for sale in the Warming House. If you bring your dog, please keep it on a leash while you are here, and do not bring it into the Warming House.
    Christmas tree varieties:
    U-Choose & Cut your own: Scotch pine, Colorado Blue spruce.

    Comments from a visitor on November 02, 2009: "I visited the Richardson "World's Largest" Corn Maze this season with my family and took a walk through their Christmas trees. Trees of different sizes and shapes, a wide range of varieties -- I was truly impressed by their selection. We have been visiting the farm for years because of their appreciation of family tradition but weren't too thrilled with their choices two years ago. Last year was better, but we are very excited to visit this holiday season. What a great outing it will be!"
    Comments from a visitor on September 01, 2008: "love the farm been going there for several years. My husband and I have been going to Richardson's farm for the last 10 years. We now have two children and have made it a family tradition. For the past three years, it has been very disappointing tree wise. Everything else is great. Hot chocolate, donuts, wreaths, kettle corn and the tractor rides. It's very family oriented. It makes us really very sad to say that we wont be going back there this year because the tree's that they have left are not very good. They are scrawny, mis-shapen and didn't appear to be properly cared for as they were growing. I think it's important to let people know before they drive all the way out there."
    Comments from a visitor on November 20, 2008: "My family and I have been coming to this farm for many years. The last 2 years we have been very dissapointed! Very much like the other family that sent feedback, the trees were not cared for and very little nice ones to choose from. More importantly we arrive at the farm the day after Thanksgiving when the first trees are allowed to be cut. This is a great family place and they really need to take care of their trees. We are looking for another place to go and recommendations would be appreciated!"
