Christmas Tree Farm

We invite you to join us at The Rocks 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.

Harvest Your Own Christmas Tree

The Rocks Christmas Tree FarmRow upon neat row of perfectly shaped and scented fir trees grow in the fields at The Rocks, and visitors may wander the farm in search of their special tree.

Growing Trees

Tree PruningAt The Rocks, 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 40,000 trees is hand-pruned each summer for optimal shaping. Come Christmastime, the trees are harvested which 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!
