Rhode Island has more than two dozen Christmas tree farms, many of which allow you to select and even cut your own tree. Unfortunately, some of the farms are already sold out due to local popularity, advance tree-tagging and even because summer draught stunted the growth of this year’s crop at some farms. But there are still plenty of options for finding the perfect tree. Select the ideal Christmas tree to decorate with the family this holiday season at one of these Rhode Island (or close by Massachusetts) tree farms or farm stands. Firs, spruces, pines and more are available for purchase at these locations. Don’t forget to bring rope if you have it, as well as your mask.

Stop and Chop Tree Farm and Tilted Barn Brewery

As part of your trip to Exeter, you can also pick up four-packs of refreshing hand-crafted New England-style IPAs at the brewery. You have to schedule a visit (right now they are fully booked for indoor tables on the weekends) but you can still pre-order cans for pickup.

Tree Tips:

  • Don’t go too big; a tree looks smaller outside than it will in your living room.
  • If purchasing a tree on a very cold day, don’t bring it into a warm house immediately.
  • If properly watered, most firs will last six to eight weeks indoors.
  • Don’t wait too long to buy; some farms close early so as not to deplete their stock of trees for future years.
