The time has come for people across Clark County to celebrate the holiday traditions on which a successful winter holiday rests. It’s time for Elvis’ Christmas Album or The Christmas Song to get a workout while you whip up batches of grandma’s famous rum balls. Break out the handmade stockings to be hung with care. And, be sure to make picking the freshest, most attractive tree a family undertaking.

If you are looking for the widest variety of the freshest trees, as well as a bonding experience in the outdoors, a u-cut tree farm is a must. All you need to do is surround yourself with loved ones, take a short drive, park your car and get hunting for the evergreen of your dreams. But, first, you need a destination. We have compiled a list of some of the u-cut trees farms in the county to help you out. In no time, you will be singing carols, sipping cocoa, and placing sentimental ornaments on the branches of a lush, vibrant show piece of a tree. Now, that is sure to become a holiday tradition.

They also operate a gift shop with items sourced from across the country. Many of the items for sale are hand-crafted at the tree farm.

Bruce and Nicki Wiseman planted their first holiday tree field in 1980. That 5-acre lot has become nearly 30-acres of Grand, Nordmann, Douglas, Fraser, and Noble Firs known as The Tree Wisemans. With the help of their five daughters, the Wiseman’s are raising over 35,000 trees for Christmas. They think it’s the perfect size, large enough for a ton of fantastic trees but small enough to give every customer personal attention. It really is a family farm. Though their daughters are grown and raising their own families, they continue making all the wreaths sold at the farm.

All of the trees on the farm are exquisite, but they specialize in large premium Noble Firs that range up to 15 feet. So, if you need a tree that is going to make a big statement, this is the tree farm for you. Read a complete story about The Tree Wisemans.

Opening Date: November 24
Hours: Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. – dark and Saturday-Sunday from 8:00 a.m. – dark
Prices: Douglas and Grand Fir — $30 for any tree under eight feet and $4.25 per foot for trees 8 feet and above. Noble, Fraser and Nordmann Fir — $46 for any tree under 8 feet and $6.75 per foot for trees 8 feet and above.
