Exit 18 on Rte 195 (Fairhaven)
Straight South about 5 Miles from 195
Look for signs on your left

There is a selection of most popular Christmas trees; balsam fir, white spruce and emerald greens. Pick any tree -- any size for $40. You can cut it yourself or our elves will do it for you. We also have cut greens suitable for wreaths, swag, and other decorations.

This year we are also offering live emerald green arborvitae for table trees at $20 each or 3 for $50. These are between 2 to 4 feet tall, potted and suitable for replanting. Ideal for small spaces, center pieces, personal trees for children or general decoration.

We suggest that you plan ahead for getting the tree home. For example, clean out the trunk, recruit a friend with a truck, etc.

This is a great time for a great cause! Sconticut Neck is a narrow, 5 mile long peninsula sticking into Buzzards Bay with only one two lane road running its length. On the days of the tree sale it looks as though there is a hurricane evacuation - with everyone salvaging a Christmas tree. The pace is about one tree every minute and a half.

The tree farm was started to restore the land to an agricultural use and to provide a retirement job. There was a grand but undefined plan to use some of the proceeds for charitable causes but we were thinking of scholarships or food banks. When we became aware of ALS TDI and their mission and how it could impact our family it was a no-brainer.

Hopefully, with your help, we'll be able to go back to scholarships very very soon!
