Washington is the Evergreen State for a reason – evergreens are quite possibly our most iconic and vivid native trees. They’re a huge part of our beautiful natural landscape, providing luscious cover for rainy winter hikes and creating scenic vistas no matter where you look.
As we continue to think, eat, drink, and celebrate local, we’d be remiss if we didn’t include tree farms in our region’s production, as they’re a fun and festive way of supporting local agriculture this holiday season! U-cut tree farms are a chance to learn more about evergreens while having a wintertime adventure for the whole family.
So pack a thermos of hot cocoa, bundle up, and head to a farm! Looking for the perfect Christmas tree is a time-honored tradition, and Washington is the place to do it! Luckily for you, there are many different tree farms for your adventure. Be sure to check their websites or social media before heading out for hours and COVID-19 precautions.
Don’t wait to head out on your seasonal adventure – many tree farms have shortened hours and limited supply!
Looking for other ways to bring the outside in? Fresh wreaths and garlands to deck your doorstep and mantles can be found on the WA Food & Farm Finder as well! Many farms sell at local farmers markets, have pre-orders and shipping options.
