Where to Buy Live Christmas Trees in Middle Tennessee 2023

It is that time of year once again, time to find the boughs of a live tree to decorate for the holiday season. Buy early!

As experienced in the last several years, there continues to be a live Christmas tree shortage. While the pandemic certainly contributed to the problem, there have also been a number of wildfires taking out stock, drought in some areas, as well as the cutback in plantings that took place back in 2008 during the recession. It takes eight to ten years for a Christmas tree to grow, so we are just seeing the effects now. Experts expect the shortages to continue through 2024.

With the shortage of live trees, compounded by inflation, prices will again be high. According to pickyourownchristmastree.org, the median price for a 6’ to 9’ Christmas tree in 2022 was $93. Prices are expected to rise between 5% and 15% in 2023. This means the median price could run as high as $107 this year. Making prices the highest they have ever been in memory.

Demand for live trees was down slightly last year, but it is expected to increase again this year as we get more “back to normal” after the pandemic. 

Here are several places to purchase a live Christmas tree if you live in Middle Tennessee.

Said one customer of their experience last year, “We just got our first tree from Country Lane Christmas Tree Farm. We had an awesome experience seeing the property and what they had to offer. They had a showroom of trees to pick from as well as bows, wreaths and accessories. The owners were great and it was a pleasure to support a local tree farm! Highly recommend getting your Christmas tree here.”

Located on the border between Cheatham and Montgomery County, Kandi Kane Christmas Tree Farm was established in 2015 by Scott and Kathey Staggs, a retired military couple.  They fell in love with the area when they arrived in 2000, and decided to make it their permanent home when Scott retired as a disabled veteran from the Army in 2010 after 23 years. Buying a Christmas Tree Farm was a dream come true.  It gave them a chance to learn and grow right along with the trees. 

They grow mainly Blue Spruce and Norway Spruce, but also have planted Canaan Firs and Murray Cypress recently. This will be their first year of Choose and Cut Blue Spruce. They will also have pre-cut Douglas, Fraser and Canaan firs.
