Evergreens are breathtaking year-round, but they’re arguably even more stately during the winter as we approach the holiday season. Our collection of Eastside Christmas tree farms offers the perfect destination for foraging through a variety of beautiful firs. You certainly won’t find any Charlie Brown trees here.
Trinity Tree Farm
The quaint 40-acre farm isn’t just a run-of-the-mill Christmas tree farm. It’s also a stunning backdrop for Pacific Northwest weddings, so you know you’re arriving at a picturesque location to pick out an equally beautiful tree. You can cut down a tree yourself or pick from their precut selection. Entertain your wee ones with train rides, and snap a photo next to the 1955 fire engine. Before you go, stop by the boutique for a quick gift. trinitytreefarm.com
Carnation Tree Farm
Two Norwegian immigrants from the late 1800s purchased a midsized farm and built a charming house in 1907 that’s now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Carnation Farm is a little slice of history that currently operates as a U-Cut Christmas Tree farm with a hearty selection of precut trees. Also available are handmade wreaths, cedar garland, swags, mistletoe, and holly. You’ll feel good about any purchases because the farm uses eco-friendly practices. Carnation. carnationtreefarm.com
Buttonwood Farm has a real community feel with a family-run operation and help from area high school students. Being 100 percent organic is a high priority for the owners, who are committed to keeping toxic sprays off the trees. If you aren’t partial to the heavy lifting that comes with cutting down a tree, pick out your favorite and let one of their friendly staff members do the work for you. Just let them know where you want it delivered! Redmond. buttonwoodfarm.com
Snow Valley Christmas Tree Farm
The Wick family wants to be part of your holiday tradition of sipping hot chocolate, taking in the smell of the Evergreens, and discovering this year’s family tree. Choose from a selection of 28,000 trees and six varieties — Noble, Grand, Frasier, Turkish, Nordmann, and Norway. And leave your gardening tools at home. At the farm, saws, mats, and twine are provided, and staff can help you harvest the tree, if you’d like. Duvall. snowvalleychristmastreefarm.com
