2020 Christmas Tree Pricing

The Wishing Tree at the Choose & Cut in Clear Lake has become a tradition like no other. The wishes placed on the tree are truly humbling. While we do not have control over the wishes and hopes that are granted, we are truly astounded when we hear that they are. When a grandpa has to show off his new grand baby that was wished for the prior year it brings tears to our eyes.

Our wish is to make your families visit as meaningful and joyful as possible.

Tips for first time guests

If this is your first visit to the BJ Evergreen Tree Farm you may have a few questions. Do not worry! Our friendly staff is there to help you with every need.

  • No need to bring a saw, we provide them to you free of charge.
  • We have greeters and maps to direct you to drive yourself to the section of the tree farm that has the perfect type of tree you are looking for.
  • Though we cover 200 acres you will have no trouble seeing your way home – there is no fear of getting lost.
  • If you don’t want to cut your own, we have a great precut selection for you.
  • Free shaking & baling of your christmas trees – this is a quick process that shakes the loose needles off of the tree so they stay on the tree farm and not on your floor and then we wrap it up for ease of transport and getting into your home.
  • Park and share time with family at free events.
