Ask some of your neighbors where they go. Elston may know of places down that way to cut your own..

A local family goes back onto our land tipping for wreaths.

We are a long ways from Portland, though anyone is welcome to cut-down a holiday tree here.

A buddy of mine in Mars Hill grows christmas trees...and it's a ten year crop...but definitely a farm...you don't plant them, them cut them 10 years later...there's lots of work that goes into them every year. No Charlie Brown christmas trees on a tree farm...that's because of all the hard work that goes into them each year.

We've got a couple Christmas tree farms in the area. I think there was a government assist about 25-30 years ago to encourage this. I remember seeing a lot of seedlings started when I first moved to Maine.

I thought about getting my tree from a local , if I can only get back into the holiday spirit. It gets harder and harder for me each year.

We go to Hanscome's tree farm on Mountfort Road in Yarmouth. I have nothing to do with them so it is not a shamless promotion for them. It's just the closest tree farm around. Last year they were $35.00. You cut it and they bring it out to your car for you on a 4 wheeler. They are gorgeous trees and well worth the money.
