Christmas Trees in Des Moines
How many of you still buy a REAL Christmas tree every year? We used to always use an artificial one, but when we started having children I wanted them to experience a real one. The great thing about purchasing a real tree is the experience of picking one out and bringing it home. We love this tradition. Take a look at some great places to find real Christmas trees in Des Moines.

Howell Tree Farm, located just 20 minutes from Des Moines, invites you to come to pick out a fresh tree for your Christmas celebration. Beginning the Saturday before Thanksgiving, you can visit the farm and pre-tag your own special tree. Take it with you that day or call ahead when you’re ready to decorate and they will have it ready for you when you come. Howell’s Tree Farm is one of our favorites to purchase a Christmas tree.

We picked our Christmas Tree from Pinkley’s a few years ago. After hearing about this hidden gem from a friend, I knew we needed to make a trip. Not only do they offer beautiful trees, but they have farm animals, hot cocoa, coffee, a fun loft, and a photobooth inside a 120-year-old barn. The kids might have had the most fun visiting and playing with the pigs, donkeys, and farm kitties.
