Marin & Sonoma Christmas Tree Farms & Lots
For many Marin and Bay Area families, the day after Thanksgiving (AKA "Black Friday") isn't the day to shop 'til you drop, but the day to visit a local tree farm or lot to pick out the perfect Christmas tree! For many, there's nothing better than visiting a North Bay Christmas tree farm to cut down your own tree. If playing lumberjack isn't your thing, there are plenty of Christmas tree lots in Marin that offer quality trees for your holiday. We've included links to our Christmas tree farm reviews where possible.
Sonoma County Christmas Tree Farms

Petaluma and Sebastopol are both convenient for Marin families and have many Christmas tree farms to choose from. At many Christmas tree farms you'll also find holiday boutiques and gift shops, farm animals to visit, crafts, and maybe even Santa himself!
