Christmas Tree Farms Where You can Pick the Best Holiday Tree

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

One of his family’s ultimate Christmas activities would be to go out to the U Cut Christmas tree farm and cut down a tree.

My family would just wander into the backyard (okay, it was 12 acres of woods) and find the perfect spruce!

Now that we have our own children, the Christmas tree farm family tradition continues.

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.

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

5 thoughts on “Real Christmas Tree Farms: 15+ Unforgettable Places in West Michigan to 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!
