Where are the best places to get a u-cut Christmas tree near Portland, Parkrose, and Gresham this year?
Searching for the perfect Christmas tree has always been a favorite family tradition of mine. When I was a kid, we would go to Wheeler Christmas Tree Farm in Oregon City, which isn’t open anymore. They had a barn with nativity animals and a shop with ornaments. A lot of tree farms in Oregon have closed in recent years, and because of a seedling shortage several years ago, many active farms don’t have enough trees this year (or the last two years) to open. With that, you should call ahead or look online to make sure the place you’re wanting to go is open, especially if you’re a week or two into December.
I tried to track down all of the u-cut Christmas trees in our region and focused on places east of the Willamette River. This list could go on and on! I found even more places than anticipated, and there’s so much information to possibly include that I will try to keep adding in. Some places are humble and don’t have much info online while others have a whole set-up with cookies and hot chocolate, a gift shop, and more. Write me in the comments with any other farms or details I should add or remove!
