Christmas Trees of VermontHome

About Us

Our business was established in 1982 with a goal of producing high quality Fraser fir Christmas trees for the wholesale market on over 70 acres of river bottom land. We later recognized the potential of the choose and cut business and of farm vacation rentals and we expanded into those markets. At the present time we have a large choose and cut operation with three to four thousand harvestable trees available during the Christmas season. We have two vacation rental units on the farm.                                                                 

                                                   

Our Location

Our  plantation  rests on the banks of the beautiful Connecticut River in Springfield, Vermont. The fertile soil and climatic conditions of river valley are not only conducive to growing high quality Fraser firs but also provide excellent recreational opportunities for our guests. Fishing, boating and swimming are available right off our private dock. Our quiet, peaceful  location is also pretty good for just “vegging” out.
