Updating for 2022
In a season full of fun traditions, one of the most memorable is that of getting the tree prepared. And it’s hard to beat the classic scene of bringing home the freshly cut tree on top of the car. Let us help you find a great place to snag that picture perfect evergreen.
Christmas tree farms across Maryland offer cut-your-own trees. Many also have pre-cut trees onsite or even offer to have you pick and they will cut it. Most have saws on hand for customers and stay open through the third week in December, although some close before Christmas Eve if supplies are low.
To begin your search, check out the following farms, a selection of choose-and-cut Christmas tree farms. Before you head out, be sure to read our Tips for Purchasing & Caring for Fresh Trees.
Fresh-cut trees not for your family? See our tips for buying an artificial tree for the holidays.
