The 9 Best Christmas Tree Farms in Delaware!

The holidays have arrived and now it’s all about twinkling lights, pine-scented candles, and picking out a Christmas tree at a local farm. This annual tradition is among the first activities on the agenda for the holidays. Here are the 10 best Christmas tree farms in Delaware. 

1. Don’s Tree Farm, Greenwood, DE

Established in 2008 by Don and Peggy Hallowell, Don’t Tree Farm boasts 40 acres of u-pick/they cut Christmas trees. With a variety of trees to choose from, this includes white pine, Douglas fir, Norway spruce, and more. And though trees are available for tagging during the fall season, you must pre-pay. And don’t forget to help others to stay warm this winter by donating hats, scarfs, gloves, or mittens to the farm.

2. Landis Tree Farm, Harbeson, DE

With some trees topping out over 15 feet-tall, Landis offers varieties like, Douglas fir, Canaan fir, concolor fir, pre-cut Fraser fir, white spruce, Norway spruce, and more. In 19991 Lorna and Jim Landis planted their first tree on 21 acres, and today the farm is filled with thousands of Christmas trees just waiting for you and your family to pick one out. When you do, someone from the farm will cut it down and wrap it up so that you can take it home.

3. Coleman’s Tree Farm, Middletown, DE

The first Christmas trees at Coleman were planted in 1955, and more trees have been planted every year. Get a wide selection of Douglas fir, u-pick, pre-cut, and handmade wreaths. Also, the on-site bake shop sells fresh baked goods and hot drinks. And be on the lookout for Santa, as he is said to roam the fields looking for the perfect tree throughout December.
