Indiana ranks 11th in the nation when it comes to growing Christmas trees, with more than 200 tree farms that produce more than 200,000 trees annually. This makes the Hoosier State a great place to find a fresh tree for the holiday season.
With a membership of 79 farms, the Indiana Christmas Tree Growers Association is an excellent resource for finding a tree farm close to home. Most farms open the day after Thanksgiving and are busiest that weekend and the first weekend in December.
Tom and Kerry Dull, owners of Dull’s Tree Farm in Boone County, expanded their farm from corn and soybeans to Christmas trees in 1985. “Our philosophy is that we aren’t selling the tree but instead the family experience of going, finding and cutting a tree together,” Kerry Dull says. “People are missing out if they don’t do it.”
Purchasing a live tree also helps the local economy and the environment because the tree can be recycled at the end of the season. [Related: How to Care for Live Christmas Trees and Evergreen Plants]
