Twinkling lights, sparkling decorations, and the smell of a fresh-cut Christmas tree – doesn’t get much more festive than that. While plenty of folks haul out the artificial tree from the attic, there’s just as many who love to go choose their own – from tall and thick, to the tiny Charlie Brown favourites. This year, many tree lots that were on hiatus due to covid last year have returned, and we’ve got a round-up of plenty of options for both u-cut and pre-cut Christmas trees in Vancouver and in every corner of the greater Vancouver region.
Make sure to check ahead for availability – some u-cut farms have already sold out.
Where to Find Real Christmas Trees in Vancouver:
Aunt Leah’s Tree Lots
Where: Burnaby, Coquitlam, and Kerrisdale
Aunt Leah’s has been a Vancouver-area tradition for nearly three decades. This year, the popular tree lots will be in three communities – Burnaby, Coquitlam, and the Kerrisdale area of Vancouver. The program is a fundraiser that helps support programs for children in foster care as well as young mothers. Last year, they raised more than $600,000. There will be no online sales this year. Trees are all pre-cut with a variety of types available.
Allouette Tree Farm
Where: Maple Ridge
Both u-cut and pre-cut trees available at this Maple Ridge farm, with expected openings in early December. Mixed varieties and limited supplies, so check it out quickly. Saws available on site – just bring yourself and your mittens.
Red Truck Trees
Where: South Surrey
Enjoy a bonfire and a hot chocolate after you’ve picked and cut down your perfect tree at Red Truck Trees in the South Surrey area. With so many tree lots located north of the Fraser or in the Valley, this is an ideal spot for Christmas trees in Vancouver for those coming from Delta, Surrey, or White Rock.
11th Seymour Scouts
Where: North Vancouver
Many Scouts Canada groups have been selling Christmas trees in Vancouver for decades and though covid may have put a brief hiatus to that, many are back this year including the 11th Seymour Scouts in North Vancouver. Selling a variety of fir trees this year, the lot is expected to be open Monday to Friday 4 to 8 pm, and weekends from 9 am to 7 pm. Pre-orders are available. And after Christmas, bring the tree back for a fundraiser tree chipping being held by the same troop.
