Christmas Tree Farms
Silveyville Christmas Tree Farm
6248 Silveyville Road, Dixon
A perfect Christmas Tree comes in many different shapes and sizes.
Does it need to be tall and skinny, or big and full?
Maybe it needs to fit on a table.
Do you love having a real Christmas Tree, but, man, those allergies?
We have trees that are less fragrant then others.
Do you always fall in love with that unique tree that has a bald spot, or lots of space, or maybe even a crooked trunk?
There are always a few looking for a new home.
Maybe you want to rescue an abandoned tree, yep it happens.
(We keep them in a special area where they get lots of love and care.)
Let us tell you about some of our Christmas Trees...

Lamb's Christmas Trees

Great selection of fresh cut trees, natural and flocked, in a variety of heights. We picked ours out within minutes and very easily flagged a worker over to come and help us prepare it for its ride home.

Chad's Christmas Trees
1300 Jefferson Blvd, West Sacramento
The truth is, when you support the Christmas tree industry by purchasing live Christmas trees for the holidays, you are contributing to a cycle of life that significantly improves our environment.
Real Christmas trees are grown on farms just like any other crop, and these farms employ more than 100,000 Americans. To ensure a constant supply, Christmas tree growers plant one to three new seedlings for every tree they harvest. So cutting a tree does not reduce the number of trees working to purify the air. In fact, if more trees are cut and sold, the industry will plant even more trees for tomorrow.
And here’s what happens: Every tree absorbs carbon dioxide and other gases, and emits fresh oxygen. It’s nature’s filtration system. What’s more, the Christmas tree farm helps to stabilize the soil, protecting the water supplies and providing refuge for wildlife. These beautiful, scenic belts of trees are often grown on soil that doesn’t support other crops, making it another win-win for the environment.
Parties, Events, Fundraisers
Vacaville Christmas Wish
The Christmas Wish program serves Vacaville's financially disadvantaged families by matching local sponsors with underprivileged children in order to fulfill their Christmas wishes.
We distribute ornaments with a child’s name and 3 wishes. Members of the community and corporate sponsors can choose any number of children to shop for to fulfill those wishes.
For those who prefer to make a cash donation to support our efforts, you can do so by using the link on our DONATE page. Our elves will take care of the shopping and ensure that each child receives a gift.
Please use the DONATE link to help us serve the children of Vacaville this Christmas. The deadline for donations for this year's gifts is November 30, 2023, though donations are welcome throughout the year.
In our 40+ years, we have served every registered Vacaville child. Please help us keep our commitment to the children of Vacaville.
Happy, Healthy Holidays to all!
