San Francisco Peninsula Christmas Tree Farms

Skyline Tree Farm La Honda

‘Tis the season to deck the halls for and we have a round of up our favorite San Francisco Peninsula Christmas Tree Farms (and one lot). From the southern part of Hwy 35, aka Skyline, up to Fort Mason in San Francisco, we have purchased trees all over the Peninsula. Over the years we started leaning more towards cutting down a fresh tree, but there were years of condo-living in San Francisco when tree shopping in a posh lot made the most sense. Things that we look for in a holiday tree shopping experience include; feelings of holiday magic, sustainable farming, opportunity to enjoy a warm (possibly spiked!) beverage and space for merry-making with our loved ones.
