Piping hot cider, mugs full of hot chocolate, a blazing bonfire. Heading to the tree farm encompasses so much more than just selecting a Christmas tree!
Here’s a rundown of tree farms around Glenmore and Highland Park, so you can try your hand at sawing your own U-Cut this year, or pick up a pre-cut tree.
Armstrong Creek Farms Ltd.
Choose from Colorado Blue Spruce, Fraser Fir, Grand Fir, Noble Fir, Norway Spruce and others, or opt for a living tree in a planter that can transplanted to the garden later in the year. Located on 190 Street in Surrey, Armstrong Creek Farms has an excellent selection of U-Cut and pre-cut trees to choose from. And don’t worry about bringing your own saw, along with a refreshment stand, Armstrong Creek Farms has plenty of saws on-hand. The farm only accepts cash, so make sure to head to the bank before you make your way there.
Open: Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Oh Christmas Tree Farms
Formerly known as the Milner Tree Farm, Oh Christmas Tree Farm re-opened in 2004, and has continued to provide families with festive fun since then. The 17-acre farm features a variety of trees, including Douglas Fir, Grand Fir, Blue Spruce, Fraser Fir and Noble Fir. Out toward the Cloverdale/Langley area, Oh Christmas Tree Farm is about a half-hour drive from Glenmore and Highland Park, but we think the easy parking and free hot chocolate by the bonfire makes up for the distance.
Open: Every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Christmas Store at Potters
Potters is the largest Christmas store in Western Canada, with over 28,000 square feet of display space! Along with an assortment of unusual holiday décor, the store is home to a selection of pre-cut trees. So, if you just can’t hack hacking down a tree yourself, you may want to head here. The garden store’s other two locations on 152nd Ave and 72nd Ave also sell a variety of fresh conifers.
Open: Monday, Tuesday & Saturday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m
Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Sunday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Art Knapp Plantland
Landscaping equipment, model trains, giftware, jewelry and Christmas trees—Art Knapp Plantland sells a lot of product! A quick drive along King George Highway from Glenmore and Highland Park will bring you Art Knapp’s Surrey location where you can purchase a few stocking stuffers along with your pre-cut tree.
