A Route One Fun reader hit me up on Twitter, asking “Where’s your favorite spot to get Xmas trees nearby? Looking to avoid Home Depot this year!” So, erm. Real talk: We bought from Hyattsville’s Home Depot last year. 😐 Don’t judge; it was easy, we were rushed, trees were available and well, that was that.
This year, though, we’re getting into the game sooner and I, too, am game to check out buying locally for our Xmas tree. Compiled below is a list of local places that neighbors have recommended as well as ones I’ve come across on listservs.
Know of another great, local place to buy a Christmas Tree? Add it to the comments below & I’ll update the post with your wisdom!

BHVFD is once again holding our Annual Christmas Trees Fundraiser Sale in the rear parking lot of the Firehouse. This is one of our most important fundraisers of the year and would like to thank everyone in advance for your support! Be sure to get your tree early. We usually sell out a week or two before Christmas even though we order more trees every year. We accept cash and checks.
Neighbor Note: “Good quality trees, reasonably priced. Wide selection of species and sizes. Conveniently located. Friendly, helpful people.
Location: 3799 East-West Hwy, Hyattsville
Linden Hill Christmas Tree Farm
Location: 4102 Old Crain Highway, Upper Marlboro, MD 20772
Neighbor Note: “Claggetts farm in upper Marlboro does cut your own and pick your own for the Chesapeake bay charity. They also do hay rides and hot apple cider.”
Location: 11904 Old Marlboro Pike, Upper Marlboro
Neighbor Note: “If you want a lovely organic tree, grown without pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers, and you want to support family-owned and operated small business, then go to Feezers Farm…(not far from Ellicot City). We used the drive to tell our six year old about stewardship, about organic farming (vs conventional), and about why we support small and local businesses. We walked through the farm and picked out our tree together, cut it ourselves and used a nifty ‘tree cart’ to bring it back to where the family helped us prep the tree and tie it on the roof of our car. We will trim the tree and have enough to make boughs and wreaths as well. It’s a great way to start off the season.”
