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 Blair, Centre, Huntingdon, Juanita, and Mifflin Counties, Central-South Pennsylvania'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! Help me keep this page complete and up to date, by
reporting any corrections needed or suggesting farms
My Christmas Tree guide has photos and descriptions of
more than 2 dozen varieties of Christmas trees, along with a simple comparison chart!
And beware the copycat websites - from Mommy-bloggers to out-and-out plagiarists, they simply copy my work and rarely update; they are just out to make a
quick buck. Since 2004, I've made updates and corrections every day!
If it has just snowed; see
this page about how to make snocones from real snow!
Your kids will love it!
- Keep in mind that state government COVID dictates may force many farms to cancel Santa visits, hayrides, etc. this year. 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
- many farms and lots are selling out of trees early this year or have COVID-19 requirements - Call 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

Updates for December 2020
December 2020: Most Christmas tree farms open on the Friday right after Thanksgiving (Black Friday, Nov 27, 2020) and are open up to Christmas Eve. Some are only open on weekends, or only have
hayrides, Santa visits and events on weekends. A few open Saturday Nov 21st. I expect that MANY farms will sell out early this year - demand will be high since people have been locked down and not allowed to do much. At least reserve your tree early!
And next Spring, you'll want to take your children to a free Easter egg hunt
see our companion website to find a local Easter Egg hunt - (www.EasterEggHuntsAndEasterEvents.org)
. It's the ONLY website that is updated every Easter for all Easter Egg hunts in

Comments from a visitor on November 30, 2013: "We have been to JB
Xmas tree farm to cut our own tree for many years. They are
friendly, pleasant and helpful. However, this year we were very
disappointed and not impressed at all! The trees were of poor
quality and despite walking the fields for over an hour, we couldn't
find one! It seems as though they are not planting enough to counter
the amount cut down each year. Very sad. It's been our family
tradition to cut our own tree down but instead, ended up buying a
pre-cut one from a grocery store. If you like White Pine, go for it,
but if you want something better, well ..."
