Christmas Trees from the Olympia National Forest

Christmas Trees from the Olympia National Forest

U-Cut Christmas tree lots dot the countryside in Thurston County.  Many tree lots don't have an Internet presence, but they do offer reasonable prices and a friendly local atmosphere.  I counted five u-cut lots between Lawrence Lake and Olympia.  A few lots offer a lot more than just trees; they offer the whole Christmas experience through agri-tourism.  Clyde 'n Dale's tree farm boasts a wagon ride pulled by their beautiful Clydesdale horses to pick out your tree.  Other farms offer free cocoa and coffee along with Christmas stores for holiday gifts and decor like Hunter Christmas Tree Farm.  Or, you may want just a really family friendly farm offering homemade s'mores and great prices on a multitude of christmas tree types and sizes, like Garrett's Christmas Tree Farm on Vail Cut-off road in Yelm.   

If you want to get the full tree adventure you can opt to search for trees in the Olympia National Forest.  Christmas tree cutting permits are now available from Olympic National Forest offices or you can order them online at . Permits cost $5 each, and maps and information about cutting locations are provided with each permit sale.

If you decide to strike out on the ultimate tree hunt, the Forest Service encourages you to be prepared for winter weather and driving by packing warm clothes and changes of clothes, blankets, and chains for your vehicle. Also, you should let someone know where you are going in case of an emergency.
