Choose and Cut Your Own Christmas Trees Around San Antonio – 2023 Edition

I’ve seen a few Christmas trees already shining through the living room windows of local houses! To be honest, mine went up on Halloween (but that’s a different story for a different day). So why not try something (possibly) different this year? Take a drive and head out to chop down your own Christmas tree. It just might become your new holiday tradition.

A variety of different sources suggest that using a real tree is actually better for the environment and even good for the economy, especially if you’re supporting a Texas farm. You can find a list of Christmas tree farms throughout Texas at the Texas Christmas Tree Growers Association website.

All the Christmas tree farms I’ve listed below open right after Thanksgiving. Be sure to call ahead to verify hours and availability, as they are subject to change. You might want to get out there early so the good ones aren’t picked over.

A few things to know before you go: all the farms I’ve listed provide all the equipment necessary to choose and cut your tree, including a measuring pole, saw, and—at some farms—a wagon. Trees are priced by type and height. Be sure to dress appropriately for the weather and terrain.

There we will shake and bale your tree and provide twine to secure your tree to your vehicle (staff members will not be able to help with this). Trees are paid for next to the tree processing station.
