Established by the Forestry Undergraduate Society (FUS) in 2006, the Christmas Tree Farm has live-potted as well as field-planted trees from over a dozen species. This Christmas season is our third year selling Christmas Trees to customers from UBC and surrounding communities. The trees planted in the farm were donated by Pelton Reforestation, Cairnpark Nursery, and Pacific Regeneration Technologies.
Revenue generated from the sale of trees supports the Forestry Undergraduate Society and a portion of proceeds from every sale will be donated to the UBC Farm and to an international charity that benefits communities, forests and the environment. For our 2016 season, we will be donating to Forests Without Borders.
We pride ourselves in growing high quality, no spray Christmas trees using environmentally safe and responsible techniques and methods. All trees are hand-pruned for shape and appeal. Every Christmas Tree at our farm is breathing fresh air and living a happy life.
We have some beautiful trees to choose from this Christmas season, a third of which are potted, live trees! If you want to return your live tree to us at the end of the holidays, we will continue growing it for a future sale. Larger trees are available for U-cut, so bring the kids for some seasonal family fun! Make sure to head down to the Farm and pick your favourite tree before we sell out!
