Boat Harbour Farm - Nanaimo
|Christmas Trees | Potted Christmas Trees | Corkscrew Branches | Our Location and Hours|
Boat Harbour Farm is located in Cedar, BC, just south of Nanaimo. It's a short drive from Nanaimo, Ladysmith or Lantzville.
Pick your tree while it's still standing in the field! Our Christmas tree farm is a "you pick, we cut, we shake, you load" Christmas tree farm.
We have several varieties of beautiful Christmas trees:
We've had lots of feedback from customers from previous years who said their tree was "the best Christmas tree we've ever had!" Some people have taken their tree in mid-November, and said it still looked great in January, or even April, after it was put outside in January! The advantage of the tree not being cut until you choose it, is that it then gets into water within a few hours, which makes a big difference in how long it lasts.
The photo on this page shows a Grand Fir on the left, a few Noble Fir in the middle, and a Douglas Fir on the right, in June. They look so nice in June with their new growth! The smaller tree has protection around the trunk so the bunnies won't do any damage.
See our Facebook page for more photos of our trees.
During the Christmas season when you arrive to pick out a tree:
If we're not outside when you get here, ring our doorbell so we can give you a "BC tree tag" to mark the tree you want. There are 2 fields of trees to choose from, so it may take you a while to choose! If it has been raining the fields may be a bit damp, so best to wear waterproof shoes.
After you choose your tree and we cut it, we'll shake it in our Christmas tree shaker to eliminate loose needles, bird nests and anything else that might be hiding in it. Don't worry - any birds have abandoned their nests long before December!
Please be prepared to load and secure your tree in or on your vehicle.
Our Square reader can accept credit cards, and Interac tap-and-pay debit. And cash always works!
