Open every day from 10 am to 7 pm
Welcome to Kurtz Christmas Trees! We are a
family owned and operated Christmas tree farm just outside of
Wellington, and have been in business for over 45 years. We
offer a variety of both freshly cut trees and also cut your own
trees. We are open 7 days a week, from 10 am to 7 pm,
starting on Thanksgiving Day. Please visit our
Facebook page for more pictures, and please feel free to add pictures
of your decorated tree or pictures of your trip to our farm! KurtzChristmasTrees
We have a variety of both fresh pre-cut trees and cut your own
trees up to 12' tall. For you adventurous types, we have over
5 acres of trees that you and your family can wander around.
We have saws available, so all you have to do is go find the perfect
tree, and cut it down. We do recommend that you dress for the
weather – it’s cold out there, and it can be a little muddy or snowy,
depending on the weather. We raise White Pines, Blue Spruce,
and Canaan Firs (a
sister tree to the
fraser fir) on our farm.
We have a large selection of pre-cut trees available, including Fraser firs, Douglas Firs, Concolor Firs, and White Pine. All of these trees are freshly cut and will hold their needles extremely well.
Our price list is below.
We have a
minimum price on cut-your-own trees
which is $45 for Blue Spruce, and Canaan Fir. The minimum
is $45 for Fraser Fir, and $35 for White Pine.
Whether you buy a pre-cut or a cut your own tree, we
will take care of the packaging. We have a net style baler
that we will run your tree through, and then we will put it in or on
top of your vehicle and secure it so you won’t lose it on the way
We make our wreaths right in
our barn from fresh cut Fraser Fir boughs. You can pick one
of the several that we have already made, or if you want a larger one,
we can custom make it for you. We have wreaths in a variety
of sizes, from the small, 10” diameter cemetary
wreaths, all the way up to custom made 48” diameter wreaths.
The prices range from $10 up to $65.
A typical wreath for a door or window would cost between $14 and $20.
WHITE PINE ROPING
We make White Pine roping by hand here, and it is 60
cents per foot. We keep as much of it available as we can,
but it is a very slow process to make it. We apologize if we
don’t have any when you come to the farm, but if you request it early
enough, we can make some for you and hold it until you come and pick it
We also sell tree stands, tree
skirts, cemetery wreath stands and tree bags (for easier removal of your tree after Christmas).
to find us:
We are located on Quarry Road, ½ mile south of
State Rt. 18, approximately 3 miles west of Wellington.
Wellington is the crossroads of State Rt. 18 and State Rt. 58, and is
approximately 10 miles south of Oberlin. Below are directions
from some local cities:
Cleveland – Take route 90/2 west to State Rt. 58 and
turn south. Take Rt. 58 south to Rt
18 in the middle of Wellingtong
and turn west. Take Rt. 18 west for approximately 3 miles to
Quarry Road and turn South. Go over the railroad tracks, and
we are the first farm on the west side of the road.
North Olmsted – Take route 480 west until Rt. 10 splits
off – take 10 west (this is where 480 goes to the right to the Ohio
Turnpike and Rt. 10 goes to the left). Stay on Rt. 10 until
it goes from a divided highway down to 2 lanes. The
first stoplight you come to is Rt. 58. (From this
intersection, you will see the new Walmart
about half of a mile from the intersection.) Take Rt 58 south to Rt. 18 (middle of
Wellington) and turn west on Rt. 18. Take 18 west
approximately 3 miles to Quarry Rd and turn south. We are the
first house after the rail road tracks.
and points west – Take State Route 18 east.
You will go through the small town of Clarksfield
State Route 511. Quarry

in general, hold
their needles the best. We
sell Fraser Firs, Concolor Firs, and Douglas Firs.
However, if you take care of your tree you shouldn’t
have any problems
with any of our trees. We

is the best way to take care of
the tree while I have it up? For
starters, right before you put the tree in the stand and take it
should make a fresh cut across the base of the tree.
Shortly after a tree is cut down, the pine
sap will harden and prevent the tree from being able to absorb water. Cutting about an inch off
of the bottom of
the trunk will allow the tree to draw water, which keeps the needles
drying out. Next,
make sure you keep
plenty of water in the tree stand.
the bottom of the tree dries out, then the sap will harden again. Don’t place your tree near
a heater, wood stove,
or a heating vent, as this will dry out the needles more quickly.
I put anything in the
water? This is one
of our favorite
conversations with customers. We
heard just about everything – aspirin, sugar, vodka, and 7-Up, just to

to just use plain old tap water – it’s the way we’ve been doing it for
40 years, and we’ve never had a problem with needles dropping. But we’re always happy to

you accept credit cards? No,
we apologize for the inconvenience, but
we do not have a credit card machine.
Our business is just too seasonal, and it’s not
worth it to have a
machine for just the short period of time that we are open.
Why don’t you have Fraser Fir or
Fir on your farm to cut? Fraser Firs
simply will not grow well on our farm.
They tend to grow best where it is a little hilly and there isn’t any
clay in the ground. Our farm is very
flat and there is a lot of clay in the ground.
We have tried growing them for several years, but we just haven’t had
much success. We have found, however,
that Canaan Fir, which is a sister to the Fraser, seems to grow fairly
the farm, and we have started growing them over the last several
years. We don’t grow Douglas Firs because there are
problems growing Douglas Fir and Blue Spruce on the same farm, and of
have been growing Blue Spruce for over 45 years now.
Thank you for visiting our site, and we hope to see you
on the farm soon! If you have any questions at all, please
feel free to send us an e-mail, or call us. We’d be happy to
answer any of your questions. Merry Chrismas everybody!
