Welcome to our little farm on the North Fork of the Holston River. The farm has been operated by the Scott family for over 100 years. We have sold Christmas  trees to families as a choose-and-cut operation since 1980.


We have a beautiful hillside of White Pine, Norway Spruce,  as well as Fraser and Canaan Firs.  The trees range from 4 feet to over 12 feet – perfect for a small trailer or a large living room. They are chemical-free trees – we do not spray for pests, but encourage beneficial insects such as ladybugs and praying mantissa.

We provide saws for you to cut your own tree, or can provide assistance if needed. We shake all trees and bale the tree for you, so you can easily carry your tree into your home to set up for the holidays.

All trees sell for $5 per foot – the same price for many years!

We accept cash, check, as well as Visa, Mastercard, Discover and all debit cards.

    1. Yes! If they are just your family taking the pictures.
      If you are a professional photographer wanting to use the farm as a backdrop, please call the farm for terms and to make arrangements.

  1. My family of 5 went today to get a tree. The people who run it were incredibly nice and knowledgeable. They let my children help with the twine and gave us tips on keeping the tree fresh. What started as a quick grab a tree turned into a forever memory with a beautiful, fresh, perfect tree.

  2. we found you in 2010 and have made your farm our yearly family tradition ever since. we have children now that range in age now 20,6, and five months. the middle one has always been to your farm and not only do we cut a family tree he pics his own for his room we expect the little one will grow to want the same. thank you for providing great memories and pics. you’re not a huge farm but you’re all we need .

  3. Had a wonderful time today! My parents always brought me to the farm as a child and now Im starting the 2nd generation tradition and brought my new daughter for her first Christmas tree! Found a beautiful one too! Thanks for all of the continued memories!!

  4. Hello!

    My fiancé and I are coming down there soon and we were wondering if you allow folks to do photography sessions there? She wants to get a wreath and take some nice photos for Christmas!


    1. We certainly hope you WON’T forget your camera when you come – the farm is so photogenic! So, feel welcome to come and take pictures. If the tree parking area is full, we may ask you to move your car to open a space for others. But, please feel free to take your time. – Jack

  5. Thank you for being so friendly and kind today! We had a great time finding our tree and exploring your farm…even though I locked the keys in our truck! Merry Christmas!

    1. So wonderful that it all worked out so well. There are lots of ways to make memories . . . You folks were great examples of rolling with the problems and laughing at adversity. Great examples for everyone at the farm!! Merry Christmas! – Jack

  6. Hi there! I wanted to see if you all have any policies about dogs. We are wanting to come purchase a tree and a wreath but also take some Christmas card pictures with our two dogs. They’re well behaved, and we would keep them on their leashes the whole time.
    Thank you so much!

    1. No problem. We love well-behaved dogs! In fact, your pups will likely meet our long-time farm-dog Daisy and her new playmate Brie. So, bring your dogs and your camera and have fun! – Jack
