Pick Your Own Christmas Trees in New Haven County

Visit a Connecticut Christmas Tree Farm for a Joyful Holiday Season

Kick off the holidays season by visiting one of Connecticut’s picturesque Christmas tree farms.

Connecticut’s some 500 Christmas tree farms are officially open for business, offering customers fresh Connecticut Grown trees. Not only is searching for the perfect tree a festive and time-honored family tradition, but it supports our state’s economy, the hardworking farmers, and our agriculture.

According to the Connecticut DEEP, nearly 4,000 acres of Connecticut farmland are planted with Christmas trees – the 13th largest acreage in the U.S. “The Christmas tree industry in Connecticut has grown significantly in recent years and now contributes about $10 million in annual economic activity,” they say.
