CUT YOUR OWN CHRISTMAS TREES NORTH OF CHICAGO IN McHENRY COUNTY -- 2015
Happy Holidays, 2015 !
At Pioneer Tree Farm we raise our trees organically, and use no pesticides as we contend with weeds and other tree pests. (Occasionally we do treat some invasive hardwood species with an herbicide). Our motivation is love of nature -- trees, wildlife, weather, the land -- and what we sell is an experience along with your Christmas tree.
This year we will be open 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Friday after Thanksgiving day, and Saturdays and Sundays until Christmas.
Everything else is much like old times (see more details below). As you enjoy your walk around to look for your tree, we hope you will enjoy the country air and the diversity of vegetation on our tree farm, perhaps see some wildlife, and have fun with other friendly people!

Pioneer Tree Farm,

1973, has a variety of
cedars, and firs.

Our trees are organically grown and pruned by hand.
Ten percent of tree sales is donated to the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County, and most of the workers are volunteers from the Defenders.Wagon rides to and from the pines, tree shaking and baling, and hot coffee and cocoa in the warming house are included at no extra charge. Hand saws are also provided, or bring your own (no chain saws or axes, please). Handcrafted holiday items are available for sale in the warming house. If you bring your dog, please keep it on a leash while you are here, and do not bring it into the Warming House.
Whether or not you've cut your own Christmas tree before, we recommend
you read Tips for
Cutting Your Own Tree. You might like to print out our map to Pioneer Tree
Farm (which also has pertinent information). Google
Maps will give you driving directions and maps as well but type in "4308 Pioneer Road, McHenry," NOT "Pioneer Tree Farm," or our correct address. Those takes you to the wrong side of the farm!
