SORRY, SOLD OUT IN 2012!
CUT YOUR OWN CHRISTMAS TREES NORTH OF CHICAGO IN McHENRY COUNTY -- 2012
Happy Holidays, 2012
At Pioneer Tree Farm we raise our trees organically, and use no pesticides as we contend with weeds and other tree pests. Our motivation is love of nature -- trees, wildlife, weather, the land -- and what we sell is an experience, not the "perfect tree".
In spite of this year's drought, which killed many of the younger trees, our inventory of cuttable trees has risen enough to allow us to open three weekends, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.:
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend (Nov. 23, 24, 25)
Saturday and Sunday, December 1 and 2
Saturday and Sunday, December 8 and 9
Everything else is much like old times (see more details below). As you enjoy your walk around to look for your tree, we hope you will enjoy the country air and the diversity of vegetation on our tree farm, perhaps see some wildlife, and have fun with other friendly people!

old fashioned fun
on a country farm,
Our trees are organically grown and pruned by hand.
Ten percent of tree sales is donated to the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County, and most of the workers are volunteers from the Defenders.Wagon rides to and from the pines, tree shaking and baling, hot coffee and cocoa in the warming house, are included at no extra charge. Hand saws are also provided, or bring your own (no chain saws or axes, please). Handcrafted holiday items are available for sale in the warming house. If you bring your dog, please keep it on a leash while you are here, and do not bring it into the Warming House.
Whether or not you've cut your own Christmas tree before, we recommend you read Tips for Cutting Your Own Tree. You might like to print out our map to Pioneer Tree Farm (which also has pertinent information). Google Maps will give you driving directions and maps as well.
