Here’s our list of Christmas tree farms where you can cut your own Christmas tree, plus some of the best local stores for fresh cut trees and other holiday greenery, as well as holiday lights, ornaments, and other seasonal décor.
Choosing a Northwest Christmas Tree
The Pacific Northwest is home to many species of evergreen trees, which come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
The five most common types of Christmas trees are: Douglas fir, Fraser fir, Grand fir, Noble fir, and Scotch pine. Other popular Christmas tree varieties you are likely to find include: Balsam Fir, Nordmann and Turkish Firs, Red Fir and White/Concolor Fir, several varieties of Spruce, and White Pine.
Most u-cut tree farms and cut tree outlets listed below offer several of the most common tree varieties and may also offer a few popular tree styles.

Cut your Christmas tree in a National Forest
One of the cheapest ways to get a Christmas tree is to cut one yourself in a National Forest. To cut a tree on federal land you must purchase a Christmas Tree Permit.
Permits cost $10 each for a tree up to 12 feet. Trees taller than 12 feet require the purchase of two permits for a price of $20. The permits are for the current season only and are non-refundable. The supply of permits at all locations is limited. Once the supply is exhausted, no more permits will be available.
Most trees are accessible only by narrow, unplowed mountain roads. Cutting areas are located within national forest lands in the eastern portions of Pierce, King, Snohomish, Skagit and Whatcom counties.
Maps and information about cutting areas are provided where permits are sold at ranger stations and the public service centers.
U-Cut Christmas tree farms
Most Christmas tree farms open Thanksgiving Weekend and stay open until Christmas Eve. However, many farms close early if they sell out, as many do. Check their website for more details before you head out, including tree varieties, prices, directions, and other information.
