There are many types of Christmas trees available on the market from which an individual and family can choose to help celebrate the holiday season. Cawley Family Farm works hard year-round to provide its customers with a wide array of live trees from which to choose. Why choose a live tree from Cawley Family Farm?
  1. Affordability
    Trees on our farm are reasonably priced based on height.
  2. Location
    Cawley Family Farm is easily accessible from anywhere on the Shore, located 1 mile west of Denton.
  3. Customer Service

    We are open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10:00 - 7:00 pm.

    If the customer wishes, we will cut, bale, drill, and / or secure the tree to the vehicle. Monday through Thursday is self-service. This means the customer is responsible for cutting the tree (hand saws available), placing payment in our blue box located outside the shop, and securing tree to vehicle.
  4. Selection
    Pre-cut Fraser Firs (new this year!) Douglas Firs, Norway Spruce, Blue Spruce, Concolor Fir (sold out) Canaan Fir, and White Pine; tree heights up to 16 feet tall. We have 10 acres to choose from.
  5. Options
    1. Each customer who comes to Cawley Family Farm is allowed to walk around the lot to pick a tree(s). The option is available to tag a tree ahead of time and then come back to cut the chosen tree.
    2. Baled: if the tree is large, there is a baler that can wrap the tree for easier travel

Things to Consider When Selecting a Live Tree:
  1. Height: Consider how tall the ceiling is where the tree will be located.
  2. Width: Consider the size of the area where the tree will go. Also consider the size of the door the tree will go through.
  3. Size of stand: Consider this to make sure the tree will fit the stand. Otherwise a new stand may need to be purchased.
  4. Type of tree desired.
  5. Do not take the tree immediately into the home. Doing so may shock the tree and cause its needles to drop.

Why is it Best to Choose a Live Tree?
  1. Pre-cut trees could potentially be dried out at the time of purchase
  2. If dried out, the chance for fire increases
  3. Freshness: live cut or dug trees maintain that Christmas tree smell for a longer period of time
  4. Length of life: a live tree will last longer in the home


Fire safety in the home is especially important during the holidays because Christmas trees are very flammable. To reduce the risk of fire:
  • Water your tree daily; a tree absorbs a surprising amount of water.
  • Place your tree away from radiators, fireplaces, and other heat sources.
  • Avoid a placement that blocks an exit.
  • Use only UL-approved electric decorations, and do not plug them into overloaded outlets. Always turn off the Christmas tree lights before leaving home or going to bed.

For more information on Christmas trees, contact your local Forest Service office; the staff will be happy to help you.
