Crane Hill Tree Farm is a "Choose and Cut" (or we will cut for you) Christmas Tree Farm on Johnson Hill Road in Washington, Massachusetts in the beautiful Berkshires. It is owned and operated by the Spencer family.

We planted our first trees in 1989, opened for business in 1997, and now have approximately 3500 trees from first year transplants up through 10 feet or more. The primary species is the traditional New England Christmas tree, the Balsam fir; but we also have a few Fraser firs; and we recently did an experimental planting of 250 Fralsam seedlings, which are a cross between Fraser and Balsam. .

Supply for the 2014 Christmas season:

Crane Hill Tree Farm has enjoyed considerable success in its mission to add the joy of a real tree to the Christmas experience of as many families as possible. After a few years in which sales outpaced the ability of the trees to keep up, we have now fully recovered. We have an ample supply of Balsams in the 5 to 8 foot size range. There is also a moderate supply of taller balsams, up to 11 feet.

DIRECTIONS:

We are just off Route 8 in Washington. (See links to maps below.)

From the South:

We are about 20 minutes from Lee or Chester/Huntington.

From Rte 20 take Rte. 8 North to the village of North Becket. At the Becket General Store take a right onto High Street. Follow High Street up the hill approximately 1 mile. You are now in Washington. Take a left onto Johnson Hill Road. Crane Hill Tree Farm is on the right (approximately 3/4 mi.).

From the North:

We are only 20 minutes from Pittsfield or Dalton.

Take Rte. 8 South through Hinsdale and into Washington. Just past the Washington Town Park take a left onto Lower Valley Road. Lower Valley Rd. will pass under the railroad tracks, then will turn hard to the right, and after a little more than 1 mile will lead to a fork in the road. At that point bear left onto Johnson Hill Rd. Crane Hill Tree Farm is on the left at the crest of the hill (approximately 1/3 mi.). If you find yourself on a dirt road, you have taken a wrong turn.
