Utah Grown Christmas Trees
by Michael Kuhns, Extension Forestry Specialist
Buying a fresh-cut Christmas tree is a fun way to ring-in the holidays, but most live Christmas trees in Utah are brought in from other states. Here are some ideas on where to get freshly cut Utah-grown Christmas trees. Find information on Christmas Tree selection and care.
Land Management Agencies – Christmas tree permits (both for individual trees and for commercial cutters) sometimes are available from Utah's land management agencies. Call your local office of an agency for the best information. Agencies who sometimes have trees available are the USDA Forest Service or the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
Robinson's Tree Farm Tree Lots – You will occasionally come upon tree lots selling pre-cut trees that have been harvested live from Utah's forests. This can be a very good way to get a really fresh tree. Tree species you will find on such lots include pinyon pine, subalpine fir, Douglas-fir, and lodgepole pine.
Choose-and-cut Trees – Utah has relatively few businesses that sell Christmas trees that are grown locally. Listed below are several that we know of. Listing, of course, does not mean we endorse any particular grower. If you grow trees or sell locally-grown trees and want to be added to our list, e-mail your information to us.
