Out in Allendale, Bosch's Countryview Nursery stands ready to offer you plenty in the way of potential Christmas trees to adorn your living room, alongside wreaths, roping, certain arrangements, and even an ornament known as a “kissing ball.” But Bosch's steps things up a bit by offering wagon rides and an array of hot drinks and snacks on the weekends. Come check out the free popcorn balls, and even pay a visit to Santa Claus on some days. Most everything you could ask for is on hand here at Bosch's.
Looking for a particular kind of Christmas tree? Ellsworth's own McPherson's Evergreens should go quite some way with lots of different kinds to offer.

Timberly Tree Farm in Sturgis runs the gamut in terms of tree offerings, with several varieties of not only choose-and-cut for those who want a full Clark Griswold experience—only one that ends well—alongside several varieties of pre-cut tree.

The farm also offers the Timberly's Treasures Up Top gift shop in the barn, with wreaths, garland and tree decorations on hand.
Even the Upper Peninsula folks need Christmas trees, and one of the biggest such operations out that way is near Carney, in Treichel’s Trees.

Sometimes there are even special events to make the whole process better.
Nothing says winter like red flannel, and nothing says Christmas like Red Flannel Christmas Tree Farm in Cedar Springs. With both pre-cut and choose-and-cut options on hand, you'll have more than enough to choose from, especially if you like fir trees.

Horton's Gwinn's Christmas Tree Farm goes for the complete experience. They're not only offering choose-and-cut, but also in several different varieties.

Hunt 4 Your Fir, in North Branch, has something special on hand. It's a choose-and-cut operation, and if you don't want to do the cutting, they can do it for you.

Throw in a set of wreaths, disposal bags, and "answer stands" that allow for rapid setup once you get the fir of your choice back home.
Head out to Peck and check out Rocky Top Christmas Tree Farm, a farm measuring 20 acres in breadth and offering a wide array of trees on hand.
