Dear friends,

We're looking forward to the Christmas season, with an excellent crop of pines, spruces, cedar, and firs. The warming house will be open with crafts for sale and there is a newly moved and assembled authentic log cabin to visit, along with other pioneer activities to enjoy.

UPDATE: It was a very busy first weekend with wonderful weather and a good crowd. So not to disappoint, we'd like to update you on the selection remaining for the last two days: Dec. 3 and 4. Tall well shaped firs are mostly gone; most of those over 6 feet are rather narrow. Spruce are in better supply but still dwindling. There are well shaped red pines and many white pines up to 8 feet in height.

From all of us at Pioneer Tree Farm,
We hope to see you soon!


Old fashioned fun

of Chicago!



Our trees are organically grown and pruned by hand.

A portion of sales is donated to the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County, and most of the workers are volunteers from the Defenders.

Wagon rides to and from the pines and tree shaking and baling are included at no extra charge. Hand saws are provided, or bring your own (no chain saws or axes, please). If you bring your dog, please keep it on a leash while you are here.

Whether or not you've cut your own Christmas tree before, we recommend you read Tips for Cutting Your Own Tree.

Google Maps will give you driving directions to the farm. We look forward to seeing you!
