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 to choose your perfect Christmas tree.

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

We have a good selection of Balsam Fir and Spruce from 6 – 11 feet as well as Scotch Pine 6 – 9 feet, ready to cut in the field.

 

Premium pre-cut trees are also available, including a selection of Balsam Fir 6 – 14 feet, Fraser Fir 6 – 9 feet and Scotch Pine 6 – 9 feet.

 

For those looking for smaller trees, we also have a good selection of pre-cut balsam and spruce trees between 3 – 6 feet available.

 

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

To Keep Everyone Safe & Happy

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 one 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.
