With the little ones all bundled up, the sun shining brightly and the chill of winter in the air, a trip into the snowy forest to choose your family Christmas tree is a holiday experience we are so fortunate to enjoy in Ontario.
For residents of Kitchener-Waterloo and Cambridge, there are a number of tree farms located close by. Why not start a new family tradition and cut down your own tree this year?
With over 60 acres of premium balsam fir and white spruce trees available, Benjamin Tree Farm in Waterloo has been providing families with Christmas trees for nearly 30 years. Visitors can cut their own tree or choose from a pre-cut selection of balsam fir, Fraser fir, noble fir and Nordman fir. Enjoy complimentary hot apple cider and cookies, and be sure to browse the gift shop, packed full of beautiful Christmas decorations and ornaments. Open for the 2015 season on November 14, Benjamin Tree Farm is located at 770 Benjamin Road.
Chickadee Christmas Trees is another fantastic option for finding that perfect tree. With a vast selection of pre-cut and harvest-your-own trees available, you're sure to find the right one for your home. They offer Scotch pine, white spruce, balsam fir and white pine trees up to 8 feet. With free hot apple cider and candy canes for the kids and a charming gift shop to explore, Chickadee Christmas Trees is a fun place to visit in anticipation of the holiday season. It is located at 6639 Wellington County Road 34 in Puslinch.
Just outside of Cambridge and Kitchener in the community of Breslau, Grobe Nursery's Indoor Christmas Tree Country has been a family favourite for more than 30 years! Beautiful Christmas trees, poinsettias, decorations, wreaths, boughs and gifts of all sorts await visitors. Open daily and located at 1787 Greenhouse Road, Grobe Nursery is a holiday hotspot.
For many families, finding that perfect Christmas tree is just as much a part of Christmas as hanging the stockings, so get out and discover a local tree farm or nursery in your area this November and December!
