Christmas Tree Farm
We invite you to join us at The Rocks Estate this holiday season to select a perfect tree from our farm. The Rocks has been described as a modern day Norman Rockwell Christmas scene, complete with the jingling bells of our horse-drawn wagon rides and marshmallows roasted to golden at our fire pit.
Guests may shop for gifts in our marketplace or online at www.therocksgiftshop.com.
Harvest Your Own Christmas Tree
Row upon neat row of perfectly shaped and scented fir trees grow in the fields at The Rocks Estate, and visitors may wander the farm in search of their special tree. You may choose and cut your Christmas tree, or have a member of The Rocks staff harvest the tree. As your tree is baled for easy transportation and loaded on your vehicle, enjoy the holiday ambience that permeates the scene at The Rocks - from warm food and hot drinks to Christmas carols and a walk along our Scrapbook Trail.
At The Rocks, we take pride in our holiday offerings:

At The Rocks Estate, we've been growing Christmas trees for over 35 years as part of our land conservation and management efforts. The 1,400-acre estate was given to the Forest Society in 1978 by Martha Batchelder and John Lee, the grandchildren of John and Frances Glessner. In making the gift, Batchelder and Lee asked that the Forest Society always maintain a crop in the field, and for more than three decades, that crop has been Christmas trees.
It takes several years to raise a Christmas tree ready for holiday trimming. We plant seedlings when they are 4 or 5 years old, and tend them for the next 6 to 9 years before they are harvested. Each of our more than 45,000 trees is hand-pruned each summer for optimal shaping. Come Christmastime, our staff carefully harvests the trees we sell at The Rocks and to wholesale and mail order customers.
In growing Christmas trees, The Rocks and the Forest Society are helping to preserve open space, provide wildlife habitat, create local jobs, and help countless people get into the holiday spirit each year!
