Tips for Visiting Christmas Tree Farms Near Houston

  • Call ahead of time to verify opening dates and hours of operation.
  • Wear close-toed shoes, as most tree farms entail a decent amount of walking through forested areas.
  • Verify the different types of payment accepted at the farm beforehand.
  • You'll want to check to see if the farm you're visiting will shake the loose pine needles from your tree and if there's any extra cost associated with packaging it to take home. 
  • Don't forget your camera! This is an experience worth documenting.
