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. We sell Christmas Trees to customers from UBC and surrounding communities during our on-site sales in mid-December each year. The trees planted in the farm have been donated by Pelton Reforestation, Cairnpark Nursery, Pacific Regeneration Technologies and Sylvan Vale Nursery.
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 Forests Without Borders, a charity of the Canadian Institute of Forestry that assists communities in developing countries re-establish forests and restore degraded environments.
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. Our trees breath fresh air and live a happy life.
We have live-potted and U-cut trees to choose from this Christmas season! 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!
