Our Response to COVID-19
We’re following COVID-19 guidelines and best practices. Masks required in tree processing and checkout areas. Additionally, we will not be serving any cider, hot chocolate or cookies this year.
We are also experiencing a shortage in our supply of pre-cut and field trees. This means we may have a shorter season than normal. Any change in our operating status will be communicated via the website, so please check back before your visit.
Jay’s Tree Farm
Open Black Friday through the weekend before Christmas
The farm features Scotch Pine, White Pine, Canaan Fir, Douglas Fir and North Carolina Fraser Fir trees. You are welcome to cut your own tree, or we can help you. We supply saws and carts to cut your tree and supply twine to tie your tree to your sleigh.
New inventory of fresh cut trees are continuously being brought out which gives you a selection of over 100 trees to choose from on our fresh cut rack.
All customers are treated with full service which includes cutting, shaking, wrapping and loading the trees. Drilling the bottom of the trees is also available for those specific kind of tree stands requiring the hole. We accept cash and card.
Each tree is priced individually with the average price being $10/ft.
In addition to our trees, we sell drill stands and fresh made wreaths.
The Scotch Pine has historically been the most popular Christmas tree in the U.S. It is known for its firm branches and excellent needle retention. It is well suited for heavy ornaments.
The White Pine has long, soft, flexible needles and is bluish-green in color. White Pines have good to excellent needle retention, but have little aroma. They aren’t recommended for heavy ornaments.
Canaan Fir is a newer variety that is becoming a very popular choice as a Christmas tree. Canaan fir has a firm branch with soft short needles. It has characteristics similar to both Balsam and Fraser fir.
The soft needles of the Douglas Fir are dark green to blue green in color and are approximately 1 – 1 ½ in. in length. The Douglas Fir needles radiate in all directions from the branch. When crushed, these needles have a sweet fragrance.
North Carolina Fraser Fir*
The North Carolina Fraser Fir trees are dark blue-green in color, have a pleasant scent, good form and excellent needle retention. The Fraser Fir branches are firm and turn slightly upward with a soft short needle.
*Due to limited supplies we may have limited or no supplies of the North Carolina Fraser Fir this year.

I’ve been visiting Jay’s Tree Farm ever since I was a kid. Choosing our own tree, cutting it down, and bringing it home was a family tradition full of great memories. I’m glad to pass this experience along to my own kids as well.
