You have reached one of the oldest and largest tree farms in Southern Michigan. We started in the 1930’s and are still going strong with two locations: one in Brooklyn, Michigan on Monroe Pike and another along I-94 between Jackson and Ann Arbor.
Getting out into the country and harvesting a fresh cut tree is a holiday tradition for many families, and providing this experience has become a full-time business for us. We strive to find ways to make your visit to the Arend Tree Farms as convenient and enjoyable as possible.
Through the years, we have changed the types of trees we grow to meet public demands. Scotch Pine used to be the most popular tree in the 60′s and 70′s, but Fraser and Douglas Fir seem to be today’s favorites. Even though fir trees are the top-sellers, we try to make every species available. In addition to cut-your-own, pre-cut trees are available in a range of sizes with some priced as low as five dollars for the budget minded. We also provide the newest innovations of the industry to our customers: balers for easy transport of your tree, shakers for clearing out the unwanted debris, and the newest tree stands on the market.
A special attraction on weekends is the horse-drawn wagon rides. Belgian draft horses pull wagons full of customers out to the cutting areas. These are extremely well trained and hardworking horses that provide a memorable ride for children and adults as well. Another attraction is the 150 year-old country church that is adjacent to the Grass Lake farm. Many families make it part of their holiday tradition to stop by the church for homemade doughnuts and cider or to purchase unique Christmas craft items.
Our main objective is to provide a friendly and unique holiday memory for your whole family. We look forward to seeing you.
