Christmas Tree Farms in the Bay Area

Ok. I am not going to lie.. I’ve been listening to Christmas music for the past.. um week two weeks. It’s bad. I have a problem. But hey, out all of the problems to have, being overly enthusiastic about Christmas doesn’t seem soooo bad.

Anywho! This year I chose to get my very first Christmas tree. Wanting to make the most of the experience, I decided to go all out and actually cut down the tree. My mom now calls me a tree murderer, but I’d like to think otherwise.

With that said, finding a tree farm required some research. So, to make all of your lives easier, I have compiled a list of tree farms in the bay area and a little information about each.
