4 Farms to Pick Up Your Christmas Tree

Pick up or chop down your very own tree from one of our favorite farms in Montgomery County, Maryland. The helpful staff at Butler’s Orchard, J. R. Wright & Sons, Meadows Farms, and Naughty Pine Nursery are ready to bundle the perfect fir or spruce tree to the roof of your car so you can make it the centerpiece of your holiday this season.

Butler’s Orchard: Germantown
From November 25 through December 24, Butler’s Orchard offers rows of Douglas Fir and Canaan Fir trees, many of which are oversized if you are looking for extra decorating space (get there early for the largest trees). Once you cut down and transport your tree on the farm’s sled system, the dedicated, friendly staff make the checkout experience merry and bright. You can also choose from their selection of pre-cut trees. Before you drive off, be sure to check out Holiday Harvest Days at the Farm Park (included with admission) and the market that sells wreaths, decorations, hot chocolate, cider, homemade treats, and more. Cut your own trees are by reservation only.

J. R. Wright & Sons: Silver Spring
For a freshly cut, reasonably priced selection of wreaths, roping, and trees, J. R. Wright & Sons is where you’ll want to be. Serving the area for more than 40 years, this nursery and garden is marked by a staff that is warm, personable, and ready to assist its customers. While you’re picking out the perfect tree, also shop some of J. R. Wright & Son’s farmers market produce for ingredients on your holiday grocery list.

Meadows Farms: Clarksburg and Burtonsville
Meadows Farms has pre-cut Fraser Fir, Balsam Fir, Douglas Fir, Noble Fir, and Nordmann Fir trees available for purchase from late November until they are sold out. Trees can be picked up from one of their two Montgomery County locations or delivered to select zip codes. Their staff is out to ensure your satisfaction, and they will coordinate a delivery date with you if you live within the delivery zone.

Naughty Pine Nursery: Dickerson
Naughty Pine Nursery has a limited selection of Douglas Fir, Blue Spruce, and Norway Spruce trees that are split into cost categories by height, allowing you to chop down a tree at your desired price point. They also have a very limited quantity of pre-cut Douglas Fir, Korean Fir, and Blue Spruce trees for sale. Beyond their spruces and firs, they also sell seasoned oak firewood to keep your hearth burning brightly throughout the holidays. The old-school Naughty Pine Nursery is open on weekends from November 25 to December 18, and they accept cash or check for payment. No appointment necessary.
