Find Your Christmas Tree in The Brighton Howell Area

December 1, 2022

The holidays are just around the corner! What better way to get your family into the holiday spirit? Go searching for the perfect Christmas Tree. To get the insider scoop, we spoke with Marsha Gray, a Livingston County local and the Executive Director of the Christmas Tree Promotion Board, on all things Christmas trees!



Why Real Christmas Trees:

There are many benefits to getting a real Christmas tree. For starters, the fresh scent of pine or balsam cannot be reproduced. They are also 100% decomposable. You can throw out your tree after the New Year without feeling guilty about contributing to landfills.

Real Christmas trees are grown on farms made specifically for the Christmas tree season. Plus, with every tree cut down that holiday season, a farmer plants one or more Christmas trees for future seasons. Not only do real Christmas trees help the environment and support local farmers, but they also make great memories with your family. The time spent choosing the perfect tree will be remembered by your children for years to come.  


Where to Go:

Waldock Tree Farm is a family-owned and operated choose-and-cut tree farm. It has been operated by Lou and Donna Waldock since 1988. Bundle up and bring a saw (if you forget, they provide them too), and choose from the acres and acres of trees.

The species of trees at Waldock Tree Farm include Balsam Fir, Canaan Fir, Concolor Fir, and Blue Spruce. Afterward, warm up in front of the stove with a warm doughnut and a hot cup of cider while their hard-working staff shakes and wraps the tree for free!


Cohoctah Meadows

How do you make a day out of selecting your perfect tree? Start out by grabbing a cup of coffee or hot chocolate from your favorite coffee shop! Once you are all warmed up, head out to the tree farm. After you find the perfect tree, grab some lunch at one of our unique restaurants. After you’re fueled up, get some Christmas shopping done at an area shop.
