15+ Unforgettable Christmas Tree Farms in West Michigan that Let You Cut Your Own Christmas Tree

Cut Your Own Christmas Tree at One of These Beautiful U Cut Christmas Tree Farms

Ladies and Gentlemen, Get Out Your Handsaws!

My favorite time of year is here! I don’t know about you, but the magic of Christmas always gives me the warm fuzzies.

It’s the cold crisp air, the white sparkly snow, the incredible spirit of giving, and the exciting tradition of picking and cutting the perfect Christmas tree and dressing it in hundreds of twinkly lights.

My husband and I both grew up having real trees in our house.

His family would go out to the U Cut Christmas tree farm and cut down a tree, and my family would just wander into the backyard (okay it was 12 acres of woods) and find the perfect tree!

Once we had our own children, we couldn’t wait to start a family tradition of going to a Christmas tree farm and cutting our Christmas Tree.

Since we live in the city we opted to drive out to a tree farm and cut one down.  These days West Michigan Christmas tree farms have so many activities and hot cocoa, it makes braving the cold an enjoyable experience for all. Sometimes we even bring our dog along for the fun.

Now that we’re seasoned Christmas Tree Farm pros, we have upgraded our Christmas Tree stand to one that accommodates drilled trees. We’ve had enough of trying to manipulate the screws on the old-fashioned bases. One year my husband rigged up a pulley system in the garage to try to get our tree to stand up straight in the base. No more!

Now we just get the tree drilled at the Christmas tree farm, take it home, and pop it on the base.

Many local Christmas tree farms sell bases for drilled trees. If this is important to you, check with your destination about availability before heading out. This tree stand version is available online and is similar to what we have.

15+ Unforgettable Christmas Tree Farms in West Michigan that Let You Cut Your Own Christmas Tree

5 thoughts on “12+ Unforgettable Christmas Tree Farms in West Michigan that Let You Cut Your Own Christmas Tree”

  1. For 10 years in all weather I took my kids to the Red Flannel Tree farm. There we chose the just-right tree, rode the tractor, had hot chocolate, and tied the tree to our car roof. Each year i enjoyed seeing the guys and our aging together, if only 2 hours a year!
    It can feel extra cold on the hills so be sure to bundle up and enjoy. I bought the tree stand they sell and recommend it.
    Keeping our tree up till Valentines Day meant tree removal was like ushering out a reluctant porcupine, and my adult kids pushed me to get a fake tree. But I cherish the real memories of cutting our own. And of the 3 places I’ve done so, Red Flannel is the place we made our annual trek.

  2. Disclaimer/warning- Lenderink is nicely set up but a small place and most trees five foot or under this year. We went there today and after riding in the metal cart pulled by the truck- we decided to go elsewhere. They were very nice, helpful, and did have marshmellow roasting, free hot chocolate, and sledding for kids. Just short trees and small selection.

    Red Flannel- in Cedar is where we ended up. The experience was great! Extremely friendly, welcoming staff. Told us what types of trees (had examples b/c who remembers what you had last year), and 4-5 rides at a time- 2 horse drawn- 3 tractor (which my son preferred) so never had to wait to get a ride back. Free hot chocolate, popcorn by donation, and cookies (3/$1) while they shake, bundle, and wrap your tree.

    We drove from Kentwood but took Northland/Beltline back for fear my husband’s lead foot would lose the tree on the highway. Definitely worth the drive.

    1. Thank you. We were planning on going to Lenderink’s next weekend. We will head to Red Flannel instead. Thanks for the info!
