A Guide to Christmas Tree Farms in & Around Dallas


The smell of apple cider and pine needles fill the air as you stroll a country farm looking for the perfect Christmas tree. Even if you’re a fake tree family, the experience is worth a trip outside city limits. Here are the best (and closest) spots. Click on the city links to see each farm’s distance from you.

Remember to check ahead for any changes to operating hours.

Depending on how particular you are about finding a certain type of tree, you may want to call ahead to check stock. And if you’re shopping for a tree after the second weekend in December, call ahead as well, especially before you make a long drive!
