Christmas Trees

Our farm is closed for the 2014 tree cutting season.  Other tree farms can be found at www.minnesotagrown.com.


The Covered Bridge Farm is a family owned and operated cut your own Christmas tree farm growing trees on about 20 acres. We have been selling trees from this farm for the past 22 years. 

We grow Fir and Spruce trees for cutting.  Every tree is sheared (shaped) every summer to provide a dense and narrow tapered tree. There are at least six varieties of Balsam Fir,  three varieties of Spruce, mostly Colorado, and several varieties of hybrid Fraser Fir crosses.  Our field is inter planted yearly so there are newly planted 1 ft. trees in the same field with mature trees.  There are no Fraser fir this year due to the severe winter of 2013 which winter burned this variety.  We are hoping that these trees will grow out of their injury and be ready to harvest in a few years.


The following pictures show a Norway Spruce before and after it is sheared.

We are a cut your own tree farm and have no wholesale or pre-cut "premium" trees.  Therefore, our tree field has the higher quality trees remaining in the field for the customer to cut.

We have the Arctic Ice Lantern molds.  These reusable molds let you freeze water into decorative luminaries to brighten your holiday displays.  For more information, visit the manufacturer's web site by clicking here.

And using LED lights and a few extra boughs from your tree, you can really create some cool looking ice lanterns.  We made this one 11/18/14.
