Where to buy Christmas trees in Los Angeles

Ready to deck the halls? Find everything from stately firs to pre-lit fake trees and even cut-your-own tree farms

Michael Juliano

Whether you enjoy the fresh smell of pine in your living room or prefer the convenience of a well-dressed, pre-lit fake tree, Los Angeles has a bounty of lots, shops and farms filled with Christmas trees of all sizes and shapes to suit your fancy—and picking one out is practically a Christmas event on its own.

As the Thanksgiving food coma starts to wear off, you’re inevitably faced with figuring out where to buy Christmas trees in Los Angeles. Even if you only have space for a little tabletop tree, there are plenty of options: real or fake? Pre-cut or cut your own? Tinsel or tons of tinsel?

After you’ve scoped out some Christmas lights and holiday markets for inspiration, start decorating with a tree from one of these places, including real, fake and live trees, along with Christmas tree farms where you can cut your own.

Cut your own tree

Christmas Ranch Tree Farms

This place is all about options, starting with choosing which location you visit (one farm is in Thousand Oaks, the other in Simi Valley—though that one’s for commercial customers only). The farms have 10 species of Christmas trees available, including a large selection of Monterey Pines, Aleppo Pines and Leyland Cypress that you can cut down, as well as five types of pre-cut firs. The Christmas Ranch Tree Farms have everything you’ll need for your tree, plus handmade Christmas wreaths and garlands for sale, and usually free candy canes, coffee and hot chocolate. But the fun doesn’t stop there: In previous years, at the Thousand Oaks location, you can get the full experience of cutting down your own Christmas tree and ride in an old Army Jeep to search for your tree.

You know how you usually go into Target with a strict budget of $25 and wind up spending $125?

The vast majority are pre-lit, with a few un-lit and outdoor trees thrown into the mix. Virginia pines, Philips Balsam firs, Wintergreen firs and flocked Kodiak spruces populate the collection. Order online for pick up or delivery, and throw in a couple of wreaths while you’re at it—you knew you were going to spend more than you’d planned on anyway.

Flora Grubb Gardens

Formerly known as the Marina del Rey Garden Center, Flora Grubb Gardens offers live Christmas trees for sale, though theirs are a bit on the smaller side—in the past they’ve been anywhere from 2 to 4 feet. You'll need to go in to pick up your tree—no online ordering—but that’s the fun part anyway. Browse the variety of fresh-cut trees and grab a poinsetta or wreath while you're at it.
