Tree Types

All of the variety of trees pictured below (except the Noble fir) are grown on the farm and are available for cutting, which makes them the freshest trees possible.  After cutting the tree you should take it home and immediately put it in water. If you wait for more than a few hours to put it up, you should make another cut on the trunk of at least one inch before putting it into a water stand. (We sell water stands at the farm for $10 - $25) All of our precut Noble fir are fresh cut from Oregon and are displayed in water for freshness.

Visit our Facebook page at "Castro Valley Christmas Tree Farm" for videos of types of trees available at the farm. 

Douglas Fir: The most popular selling tree on the farm. Short blue-green needles and spaces between branches for hanging ornaments. Nice fragrance, Keeps well if placed in a waterstand.


Monterey Pine: We only have quite a few of these in the 6'-8' size this year along the road. This pine has long needles and is very bushy. It has a pine fragrance and must be kept in a waterstand to stay fresh.


Sierra Redwood (Sequoia): We only have a few of these. A 'fleecy' looking tree with a light green color and a 'tangy' fragrance. Keep it in a waterstand for freshness.


Noble Fir (Pre-cut only): These are the royalty of Christmas trees. With blue-green color and firm, evenly spaced branches, it is ideal for big ornaments.


There are thousands of premium trees from which to choose at our picturesque farm.





Come out and cut a tree and enjoy the great outdoors at the same time.
