Chicago Area Christmas Tree Farms 2015

Chicago Area Christmas Tree Farms 2015 #Chicago #Christmas #tree #pickyourown

Sure, you could get your real Christmas tree from a cut tree lot at a strip mall, but that’s no fun. Continue a holiday tradition or start a new one; bundle up, find a farm, and let the whole family choose the perfect tree. Celebrate with cocoa or cider and then bring your special tree home to decorate.

All of the farms listed below offer pick-your-own trees. As always, it’s best to call ahead to ensure the farm will be open and trees are available. Please note that many farms accept only cash or checks.
