When I was growing up, we would always go out to my grandfather’s farm and hunt down the best looking cedar that we could find to cut down for our Christmas tree. It was always a real challenge to find the perfect wild cedar that didn’t have huge holes on one size and that wasn’t 20 feet tall. Fortunately today there are Christmas tree farms where all the Christmas Trees are just right. You don’t need to go out roaming the cow pastures to find a perfect tree growing wild along a fence row. In Central New Jersey there are a great number of farms across the region; with Hunterdon and Mercer County having the most. I could not find any Christmas tree farms left in Union County and they’re getting quite rare in Somerset County too.

* Please note: I’ve been as accurate as possible. Some information may have changed and the supply of trees changes daily. In order to avoid disappointment, please call the farm that you want to visit before you make a trip of any length to confirm supply of trees, hours, prices and directions.

Also see our North Jersey Christmas Tree Farms (Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Morris, Passaic, Sussex and Warren Counties) and our Jersey Shore Christmas Tree Farms (Monmouth, Ocean, Atlantic, Cape May Counties). Our South Jersey Guide will be out in a couple of days. Merry Christmas everyone!
