Choose your special tree from over 2,500 trees on 50 acres. Howell Tree Farm has beautiful Scotch Pine, White Pine, Fir, and lined up in neat rows awaiting the Christmas season. Tree hunters will find it easy to select that perfect tree.


Howell Tree Farm is open for the Christmas season beginning the Saturday before Thanksgiving. You can pre-tag your selection and take it with you that day, or call ahead when you're ready to decorate and we'll have it ready for you when you come. Either way, we cut your tree, shake it, wrap it, and load it into your vehicle --- you don't have to do a thing! Purchase one of our stands and we'll mount it for a small fee. It's our "Marriage-saver Special."

While you're at the Howell Tree Farm, check out our other tree accessories, our large selection of fresh evergreen wreaths, centerpieces and swags. Browse through our gift shop with a cup of coffee or cocoa. Find just the right gift for a friend, a new ornament to add to your tree, or a stocking for Santa to stuff. We have Santas of all shapes and sizes, and nativity scenes too!

Just what you need to bring a little Christmas to your door


Howell Tree Farm raises a variety of landscaping trees along with our Christmas trees. Make an appointment to visit the farm during the growing season to choose the perfect tree for your yard.

Our tree spading service can move trees with up to a 9" diameter trunk. We come to your house, dig the hole, return to the farm and dig the tree, then bring it back to your house to plant it. Imagine an instant tree in your yard, and you don't even have to dig the hole!

Need a tree on your property moved? We can do that too! Call us at (515) 981-4762 for more details.
