Merry Christmas!

Welcome to our family farm. We are open for the 2017 holiday season.

Open daily 10am to 8pm

Our U-cuts are closed for the season. (We close our U-cut field so we can be sustainable with a crop of trees for future years.)

As in prior years, we have beautiful Douglas firs to 7.5' priced lower than our field. Our other trees are priced per foot. We have fragrant Grands, classic Nobles, and elegant Frasers and Nordmans. We do have our extra tall trees. All of our trees are cut weekly and displayed in water.

Come sip complimentary cider or hot chocolate and enjoy a candy cane while you search for your Christmas tree. We run the wagon during daylight hours all season. You are welcome to ride around the farm and walk through the fields. We look forward to seeing you!

Sustainability

Live Christmas trees are a renewable resource with a positive impact on our climate. Due to photosynthesis Christmas trees absorb carbon dioxide and emit oxygen. Studies by the National Christmas Tree Association show that a single acre of Christmas trees will produce the daily oxygen requirement for 18 people every day.

Here in the Northwest, hundreds of thousands of acres are dedicated to their growth. Each Christmas tree farm plants varieties that are acclimated to the local environment. The average tree from our field takes 6-10 years to reach maturity. We currently plant seedlings 1-3 years old. The most crucial period is the two years of growth after planting. Our "baby" trees are the most susceptible to challenges including morning glory and grass. Christmas tree farming has it's challenges; For every tree that is harvested, anywhere from one to three more seedlings are planted.

As with most farming, we are active all year. We spend our spring and summer mowing between and under each tree, and pulling morning glory by hand. Unfortunately we can't change the weather so especially wet or dry seasons can be hard on even mature trees. We also shape and "shear" each tree with a machete-like tool. Our hard work is well-worth seeing everyone out in the field choosing their perfect tree.

Our History

"Grandpa" Larry McMurtrey established our farm over forty years ago, in 1974. We have been growing Christmas trees along Redmond-Woodinville road since 1978. McMurtrey's Red-Wood Christmas Tree Farm is now owned and operated by his youngest daughter and son-in-law, Jana and Pablo Sifuentes.

We look forward to seeing all the happy faces every year. The tradition of choosing a beautiful Christmas tree with the family, having a cup of hot chocolate or cider, candy canes, and decorating the tree is a loved event.
