VAIL CHRISTMAS TREES
Colorado Alpines & Wildflower Farm sells a variety of high-quality Vail Christmas trees and holiday decor for other areas in the Vail Valley, too. We begin taking pre-orders for Christmas trees each year as early November 1, and trees usually arrive each year in time for Thanksgiving Day. Pre-ordering a tree is not necessary, as anyone can come by in person to shop our gorgeous stock of Christmas trees, live greenery, poinsettias, and other holiday plants.

The three types of Christmas trees we normally have for sale include the Fraser Fir, Douglas Fir, and Balsam Fir. We’ll have trees in heights that range from mini to monster and in sizes good for decorating on side tables or for featuring in massive, open entryways. Don’t forget: we also offer a wide array of holiday services, so if you’re in a bind, we can deliver, set-up, decorate, and even take down your tree. Make sure to schedule holiday services early, as we get busy, busy, busy–like Santa’s elves–in December.
