The Minnesota Christmas Tree Association has provided information that will help you locate a farm, find your perfect tree, tell you how to care for it, and assure you that celebrating the holidays with a real Christmas tree truly benefits the environment.
Find tools for environmental education through our Go Green, Get Real® program, and community events and activities such as the Minnesota State Fair, where you can view some of the finest trees and meet local tree growers.
This year, keep the tradition going or start a new family tradition—buy a real Christmas Tree.

Happy Land Tree Farms is a family business, started by brothers Ken and Phil Olson. Over the years, several family members have joined the farm as well. Ken started in the tree business in 1963 at the age of 15. He very much enjoyed the tree business, and saw his future in a partnership with his brother Phil. They began planting trees on each of their own home sites in their spare time, and in 1991 when the trees reached maturity, they incorporated.
Happy Land Tree Farms has now grown into a thriving Wholesale Nursery Business, as well as continuing to be a part of the Christmas Tree Business. With a lot of hard work and dedication, Happy Land is now comprised of over 600 acres planted with a wide variety of coniferous and deciduous trees.
In 2005, we built a new office to serve our customers better. It enabled us to start a new gift shop during the Christmas season and provide concessions in a nice atmosphere to warm up in after cutting your Christmas tree.
