Our trees are FRESH, FRAGRANT & FARM GROWN. Nothing says Christmas more than the smell of a Real Christmas Tree!
Scothorn Farms Ltd. operates a U-Pick and Wholesale Christmas tree business located in Hants County, Nova Scotia, Canada. We are growers of the aromatic Nova Scotian balsam fir, the scent you remember from those Christmas's long ago.
Over 140 acres, approximately 140,000, beautifully sheared trees to choose from in our U-pick! Come select and cut your own this Holiday Season.
Proud winner of the "Exporter of the Year 2013" award from the East Hants Chamber of Commerce and recipient of the "Nova Scotia Export Achievement Award 2014." Read more about it in our feature in the Nova Scotia Business Journal.
Our trees are environmentally friendly. We have a variety of wildlife (rabbits, bees, deer, raccoons and skunks to name a few) that make their home in and around the tree lot. We have 140 acres with approximately 140,000 trees, from seedlings to 15 feet tall. Every acre of trees produces enough oxygen for 18 people per day. Our tree lot sustains life for 2520 people! Every tree that is cut in the fall is replaced with natural regrowth or transplants.
Scothorn Farms is conveniently located in close proximity (50km) to one of the leading ports on the eastern seaboard (Port of Halifax), with shipments going to Caribbean, Eastern US, South America and across Canada.
Our U-Pick tree lot is located approximately 50km (45 minute drive) from downtown Halifax. Our U-Pick is an excellent place to bring the family for an afternoon of Christmas cheer!
