Ann Arbor Christmas Tree Farms

Start A New Tradition At One Of These Ann Arbor Christmas Tree Farms

For many families, cutting their own Christmas Tree is an annual tradition – or one they want to start. While there are no Ann Arbor Christmas Tree Farms, there are several options nearby.

Many years December seems to be a whirlwind of events and everyone is so busy. With less activities in 2020, it is a perfect year to trade in a quick stop at a tree lot for a trip to a Christmas Tree Farm. Since the farms are outdoors and mostly in a field, social distancing is easy. And most farms have listed safety precautions to further reduce the risks. Each listing below includes some of the CVOID precautions that each farm listed.

Note: We recommend visiting a tree farm early in the season in case COVID numbers continue to rise and Michigan returns to a stay at home order.

Ann Arbor Christmas Tree Farms

Personally, I’ve always had an artificial tree, but over the years readers have asked me where they can go to get their tree. Thanks to reader suggestions over the years for their input in this list of Ann Arbor Christmas Tree Farms.
