Christmas Trees at Dewberry Farm
Take a wagon ride or ride on the Dewville Express Train to the “forest” on the back 40 acres. Search the Christmas Forest for the right tree. Cut your tree (we furnish the saw), or we cut it for you. Ride back to Santa’s Workshop for tree baling.
We’re proud of our Trees!
We grow several varieties of trees in our Christmas Forest — read more about them below. Tree heights in the 2018 season range from 5-feet to 13-feet. Also, due to popular demand, we have about 300 Leylands and Murrays that are only lightly trimmed — we call them “wild” trees! The wild trees are stunning and priced in the same range as their trimmed counterparts.
A customer favorite! Leylands have a softer and fuller foliage than the Murrays but will also stay fresh for a long time if constantly kept in water. The Leylands have a light but a very fresh scent. Because of their weaker limb strength, heavier ornaments will need to be placed deeper into the tree or hung on the tree light wires. This year’s crop of Leylands are mostly in the 5-11 foot height.
Similar to Leylands in reduced allergy problems, they have even a greater ability to remain fresh for a long time. The Murrays have a more open leaf texture than Leylands and have stronger limbs for holding your heavier ornaments. They also have a little darker green color than the Leylands and have more fragrance although still a light subtle fragrance. Murray tree height this year will range from 5-13 feet.
A stunning silvery blue tree that is strikingly beautiful in the home setting. This variety has a stronger aromatic fragrance than the Murrays or Leylands but like the Murrays and Leylands, holds needles very well. This variety has the strongest limb strength of any variety sold on the Farm. The Blue Ice trees this season range from 5-9 foot height.
