They are closed on Mondays.

Smolak Farms
Smolak Farms is your destination for everything merry and bright this holiday season! They will offer pre-cut and cut-your-own trees on their picturesque farm complete with fallow deer. They will have cut Balsam and Fraser Firs from five feet and to a soaring sixteen feet for sale. If you want to cut your own tree, head their early in the season as they often run out.

Greenwood Tree Farm
Opening for the season on November 30, this spot has pre-cut trees as well as a limited number of u-cut trees for sale. Fraser Fir and Balsam Fir are the dominant varieties and they only accept cash or check (ATM available on site). Don’t miss out on the free apple cider and purchase some honey to take home with you.

Billerica, MA

Tree-Berry Farm
This spot offers blueberry picking in the warmer months and Christmas trees in the colder months. Stroll through the field to find the perfect tree then flag down a cutter who will measure and cut your tree for you. Choose from a handful of spruce and fir varieties. If you are lucky, the hayride will be running while you are there.

Beverly Tree Farm
This farm offers Balsam Fir, Fraser Fir and some Concolors. All of their trees are shaped and sheared and take 6-12 years to reach maturity, eventually becoming one of the trees you select for your home. Check in at the barn to obtain your tag, take a walk out to the open field to select your tree. After you cut down your tree with the saw provided, drag it to the end of the row and the trailer will pick up your tree and bring it back to the baling station, where they will wrap it for travel.
