Real Christmas Tree Farms: 15+ Unforgettable Places in West Michigan Where You Can Cut Your Own Christmas Tree

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 U Cut Christmas Tree Farms

My husband and I both grew up having real Christmas 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 real 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 even 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.

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 Where You Can 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!
