Where in the Vancouver Area to U-Cut Christmas Trees 2017

Christmas time is all about traditions right? Well this year the kidlets have requested that we use a real tree for our Christmas tree this year. Before that we’ve done an artificial tree for the past oh, 6 years or so. But where in the Vancouver area can you go and cut down a Christmas tree yourself? Aside from randomly cutting one down in some forest, there are a few tree farms out in the western parts of the greater Vancouver area.

I have not visited any of these places, yet, but multiple people have recommended each of them and they seem to have opened this past weekend!

Also note that many of these farms are only open till 4PM as it would be pretty hard to find that perfect tree in the dark right?
