Smell the Pine: Eastern Manitoba Tree Farms

We all have our family traditions for the Christmas Season. For some of us, it’s baking cookies with the kids, or perhaps it’s enjoying that first cup of Egg Nog as soon as it hits the store shelves. One thing that most of us have in common is the joy of putting up the Christmas Tree with the family. For a lot of people, that is what sets the mood and tone for the holiday season. Once the tree is up, it’s time for long, cozy nights basking in the twinkling lights while listening to the crackling fire.


Quite possibly the only thing that makes this scene any better is the scent of pine or fir wafting through the air. Now, you could use air fresheners and other gimmicks to produce the scent, but nothing beats the real deal.

There’s something magical about setting up a real Christmas Tree versus an artificial one. It’s an experience that has to be lived to truly know the difference. So, if you haven’t gotten your tree all set up and ready for the holiday season why don’t consider heading out to a local tree farm and trying out a real one this year?

You Don’t Know What You’re Missing

Heading out to a tree farm to choose the perfect Christmas Tree is an adventure that can, and should be, enjoyed by the entire family! Walking through the rows of trees; breathing in the crisp cool air while the fresh scents of the trees linger in the air and fill your heart with the spirit of the holiday season.

Are you in search of the perfectly lush, 8-footer that will hold your families entire collection of ornaments all at once? Maybe you’re in the market for something a little smaller, something that can fit all the handmade ornaments you’ll be making with the kids as one of those special Christmas traditions. Or maybe you’re more into having multiple smaller trees strategically placed around your home so that everything feels alive with Christmas Spirit.

Each tree is unique in its own way, and discovering your “perfect tree” is a great way to make memories with friends and family. Each Tree Farm offers a unique experience for you to enjoy as well. Do you want to cut down your own tree? How about enjoying a nice cup of hot chocolate or apple cider after you’ve found your gem? Let’s not forget about the candy canes, cookies and other baked goods you can find at our local tree farms.
