Penland Tree Farm

Christmas Trees

Our farm grows Virginia Pines (AK Southern Scotch), White Pine, Leyland Cypress, Red Cedar, and Carolina Sapphires. Most trees available range from 5 to 8 feet tall, but we do have Leyland Cypress up to 16 feet tall. We also carry the above trees with root balls that allow you to plant your tree after the Christmas season. We cannot grow Frazier Fir trees (mountain trees) on our farm, but we do have pre-cut Frazier Fir trees available that range from 5 to 12 feet tall.
