Welcome to the Delaware Christmas Tree Growers’ Association web site. We invite you to browse through the material presented and hope that you will find it both informative and useful.
In Delaware, Christmas tree farms are not new. Many have been in operation for 40 years or more. These tree farms range from small acre-sized plots to large hundred acre operations. Although the farms we represent may differ in size, as members of the Delaware Christmas Tree Growers’ Association, we are united in our desire to achieve the same goal – that is, to invite you and your family to enjoy the natural beauty of our tree farms and to experience the fun of searching for your own “real” Christmas tree. We encourage you to make your visit to a Christmas tree farm part of your family’s Christmas tradition.
Delaware Christmas tree growers are strongly committed to improving the environment. The evergreen trees we grow absorb carbon dioxide from the air and give off oxygen. In this way, Christmas trees reduce the “carbon footprint” that we hear so much about today. Each year, Delaware Christmas Tree Growers replace the trees they have harvested during the Christmas Season. Thus, the viability of the Delaware Christmas tree population is sustained at the same time the state’s air quality is improved.
Members of the Delaware Christmas Tree Growers’ Association are scattered throughout the three counties of Delaware. Each farm has a unique style and offers varied recreational opportunities. Some farms offer wagon or tractor rides. Others have wildlife viewing areas, Christmas gift shops, playgrounds for the youngsters or visits from Santa Claus. You may even find a reindeer or two!
