You can cut your own Christmas tree (by donation) at Inisfree Farm in Royston, Dec. 7-8.

Cut your own Christmas tree at Royston farm

You know that lovely smell of a real Christmas tree that hits you the minute you walk in the door?

All bright and wintery and fresh. Decorating a real tree for the holidays is a long-standing tradition many believe started in Germany over 1,000 years ago. Its popularity has never diminished.

There’s something nostalgic about cutting down your own tree; it’s part of the magic of Christmas and this year, you and your family can bring that magic home.

Come on down to Innisfree Farm on Trent Road in Royston on Dec. 7 and 8 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., enjoy a mug of hot spiced apple juice and learn about the history of decorating trees. Take a walk through our tree lot and choose a tree to take home. We have noble firs and Douglas firs from four to 20 feet tall, trimmed for extra bushiness. All trees are by donation to the Botanic Garden (suggested $5 per foot), with proceeds being used to enhance visitor services – more benches, improved paths, more signage and more horticulture therapy programming.

The Botanic Garden at Innisfree Farm in Royston is open to the public every weekend from June through August, with hundreds of visitors enjoying the themed gardens, the pond, the labyrinth and the tea-room. The gardens are now closed for the winter but will be open for two special days in December to offer the community a chance to cut a live Christmas tree.
