For over 40 years, Paine's Christmas Trees has been operating on the family homestead located in central Vermont (about 4 miles north of Stowe village). Their trees are primarily Fraser fir along with a limited selection of Balsam fir.

You may visit the tree farm any time of the year. Most people start tagging their Christmas trees in August and continue through fall and Thanksgiving. When arriving at the tree farm, they ask that you register your name in the notebook on the porch of the white family farmhouse. The registration table is set up daily where you can get your tag and the colored ribbon used to readily identify your tree. Then head out into the many acres of fields to find the perfect tree.

When you come back in December to cut your tree, just tell one of the tree lot attendants where your tree is located and they'll be happy to give you a ride on the tractor-driven haywagon, or you may trek out there yourself and cut it with the saws provided. If you prefer not to tag or cut your own tree, there are always plenty of trees on the retail lot and range in price from $5 to $35, depending on the size.

Paine's will bale your tree with nylon twine for easy transport and setup. One of their lot attendants will tie the tree on your vehicle to ensure easy transport to wherever you live.

    "We met up with my sister and her brood at Paine's yesterday for yet another picturesque Vermont Christmas Tree cutting experience. Mother nature provided the snow, but Paine's provided the landscape. Paine's is located just 7 miles past the town of Stowe on Route 100. Their fields are huge and are set against the backdrop of the mountains. It just wasn't possible to get any prettier. After being directed by helpful staff to your parking spot, pop into the shop to grab a saw, measuring stick and sled. You can walk or ride the tractor in search of your perfect tree. We opted to walk. And walk. We found ourselves in the farthest corner of the farm, but that was fine because we were in search of a huge tree. Paine's trims their trees so that they have a beautiful shape. Although you can find some that aren't if you are looking for trees au naturale. One of the nice things about this farm is that the guys on the tractors are constantly circling looking to see if they can not only help you bring your tree back to the parking lot, but they will cut it down for you with a chain saw if need be. Once you get back to the lot they will bail it up for you and help you get it in the car. While you pay the kids can grab a candy cane from the shop. Perhaps because this farm is so large it never felt crowded. We were alone in the field most of time. I would have given Paine's 5 stars but I was disappointed with the price of our tree. Albeit we got a 20 foot unshaped tree, but the sign said 12' and over 90 and we were charged 150."

    "We went to Paine's Tree Farm this past weekend. The trees come in all sizes and are beautiful and full, there was a really big selection! We cut our own with a hand saw they provided, and grabbed a couple sleds for the kids they provided as well. They also provided hot apple cider at no extra cost. There were beautiful wreaths for sale as well as adorable ornaments in their gift shop. Definitely worth the drive from central Vermont!"
