This season, we welcomed Vermont Governor Phil Scott to our farm in Barton, VT.  He was able to find the perfect Christmas Tree.  Here is a video of his experience:  




   It is always a nice feeling when people come back every year and tell us that we are a part of their holiday tradition, both here at home and in Connecticut! So very many let us know how much they LOVE our trees and wouldn’t  want to go anywhere else!


   Now, as the snow falls, I take this time to put on my snowshoes and do inventories and check all the trees. Soon, I will take foliar samples to be tested for nutrients and figure how to adjust inputs to make sure all the trees are getting the correct combination of elements to keep them growing in a healthy manner. We must work to maintain their beautiful color that you expect. I also spend time going to Christmas Tree meetings to get new ideas about growing, and keeping the insects and other pests away.


   The work is never done, as well as the need to educate oneself to do the best job possible in order to produce the best tree for all of you. See you in the spring!! 

Christmas Tree


Tester's Vermont Christmas Trees is nestled in what is known as Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. Our family-owned farm consists of 6 plantations within a 50-mile radius, where we grow Fraser fir trees, Balsam fir trees, beautiful hybrids, and firs for making Christmas wreaths. An elevation of approximately 2000 feet enables us to grow a hardy Vermont Christmas tree with deep color and good needle retention. We are very pleased to be able to offer our Christmas trees and wreaths directly to you through our online store.

Many of our Balsam Christmas trees are of the Cooks strain or Mountain Balsam variety. The short blue/green needles have many of the same qualities as the Fraser, and make beautiful Christmas trees or wreaths. We take an aggressive and intensive approach to growing on our plantations, and all our Christmas trees are fertilized and monitored for insects or other pests regularly.

We have been in business for 25 years, have grown every year, and now are one of the largest growers of Vermont Christmas Trees. We are one of the few farms in the state that grow Fraser fir trees in any quantity.

Our Christmas trees are available to wholesalers or to retail customers online, or join us on our farm to select or cut your own tree for Christmas. Come by weekends during the holiday season, and enjoy a hay ride to the trees to cut your own, or have a nice cup of hot cider or cocoa on the house!

Tester's Vermont Christmas Trees - make us a part of your holiday tradition! We offer Wholesale Christmas Trees and Choose and Cut Christmas Trees right on our farm in Barton, Vermont.  We also have a retail location in Niantic, Connecticut.
