We are Closed for the Season — See You Next Year!

Thomas Tree Farm is set on a beautiful 50-acre property
just south of Ottawa, 3 kms west of North Gower.

Wander through our maple bush, ride the tractor-drawn hay wagon or
take the horse-drawn sleigh to choose your perfect Christmas tree.

»

After your tree excursion
we will serve you hot chocolate and homemade cookies
while you warm up by the fire at our sugar house.

»

We have a good selection of Balsam Fir, Spruce, and Scotch Pine
from 6 – 9 feet ready to cut.
as well as pre-cut Balsam Fir 6 – 12 feet
and Fraser Fir 6 – 9 feet.

We also have beautiful hand-made evergreen wreaths
which will add a festive touch to your home.

Trees appear smaller in the field than in your house. Most house ceilings are 8 ft in height. A person 6 ft in height can reach to about 8ft on his or her tippy-toes.

Caring for
your tree
Tree Care

All species of trees must be cared for properly to make them last. Proper care includes:

Keep the tree outdoors out of the wind and sun until you are ready to put it up.

If temperatures are above freezing a tree can be kept in the garage in a bucket of water.

Before you put the tree up make a fresh straight cut about 1 inch from the bottom. This opens up the tree trunk so it can take water.

Keep the tree away from things such as fireplaces and heaters that may prematurely dry the tree.

Use a good quality tree stand that will hold the tree securely and hold at least 4 litres of water.
