Tester's Vermont Christmas Trees-- Your online source for Vermont-fresh Wreaths, Christmas Trees and hand painted ornaments!


The 2014 Christmas Tree harvest is upon us. Our Christmas trees have had a wonderful growing season and the color is luscious green and blue! We have a large selection of balsam & fraser firs available.

You can take a wagon ride out to cut your own, or drive yourself out, or pick from one of our carefully selected homegrown trees at our cute little Christmas Barn here on the home farm. Your choice! We have lots of beautifully decorated (and undecorated) wreaths as well.

You are always welcome to some complimentary hot cocoa or hot cider, a candy cane for the kids and a sweet little ornament. We open the day after Thanksgiving. And on the weekends after that.

Soon we will be loading trucks to all over New England and New York. This is a very busy time of year.

We look forward to seeing all our old and new customers this season!


During Thanksgiving 2008, we had a visit from Vermont's Channel 3 News, WCAX-TV.  See the story and video  HERE.  


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 mail-order Christmas Trees, 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.
