Green Acres Tree Farm in Hayward, Wisconsin was started after a number of years of research into Christmas tree farming that resulted from an interest in observing other Christmas tree farms grow and develop. It stemmed from a love of the outdoors, an interest in sustainable agriculture, and an outgrowth of my Biology major in college.
Our main goal is simply to grow and produce beautiful Christmas trees and produce exceptional wreaths. Some things are just better done the old fashioned way and growing trees is one of them. It takes years of laborious work and some help from mother nature to get a tree ready for harvest. The results are worth it as nothing quite compares to a real tree at Christmas time.
We are a small 32 acre tree farm designed for selling trees to small wholesale accounts, making and selling wreaths for fundraisers, wholesale accounts or corporate gifts, and supplying our own retail lot in the western Chicago Suburbs. Because of our small size we have chosen to focus on quality rather than quantity and attention is paid to every detail of the management of the trees. If you are interested in any of our wreaths check out our page on this site dedicated to that. If you would like to become a wholesale tree purchaser please email us to discuss your needs.
Boughs wholesale purchase program: Although many of the evergreen boughs are harvested on our farm the volume of wreaths that we sell require us to purchase fresh harvested boughs from the adjacent county state and federal forest lands. If you are a local harvester in the Hayward\Spider Lake\Clam Lake area we purchase balsam boughs by the pound starting in October depending on weather. Boughs are purchased between 5PM and 7:PM at the farm building located at 12681 Murphy Blvd. Hayward, Wi. 54843. Call 630-779-6249 for pricing and further details.
