39336 NE Washougal River Rd, Washougal, WA 98671
Washougal River Christmas Trees, located in the heart of the upper Washougal Valley, is a family-owned 160-acre farm that has been serving the area for over four decades. For those who are feeling a little more adventurous, I highly recommend checking out their new U-Cut area which features their most fabulous trees and an amazing view of the farm.
The farm offers Douglas and Noble Fir trees, all at a flat rate of $59.95. While they do accept credit cards (there’s a $2 charge), they suggest you pay with checks or cash since their credit card system works very slowly. As always, tree shaking, bailing, and drilling (if necessary) for all trees are free.
As a special treat, you can enjoy free cocoa, coffee, and candy canes for kids. Don’t forget to check out their covered area with adorable animals such as llamas, baby pigs, dwarf goats, rabbits, and Elvis the mini donkey. Additionally, the farm is an official “Letters to Santa” collection station so encourage your kids to write and drop off their letters to Santa at the cocoa station.

Their farm is massive enough to produce a huge variety of tree species and sizes yet still small enough to provide personal attention and assistance to each of their customers.
This family farm can shake your chosen tree upon request free of charge while for a small fee, they can also bale your tree. Other services they offer include flocking and fireproofing any tree species up to 9 feet tall. They also provide saws you can use to cut your tree, twine to tie it to your vehicle, and free candy canes for the kids.
