Open Daily 8AM - 5PM beginning the weekend before Thanksgiving, including Thanksgiving day!
Established in 1948, Crest Ranch Christmas Tree Farm is the oldest choose and cut Christmas tree farm in the Western United States. Located above Santa Cruz at the top of 2,600-foot Ben Lomond mountain overlooking the village of Boulder Creek, we have over 50 acres of Christmas trees with over 20 tree varieties.
But it's not just the quality and selection of Christmas trees that brings people to Crest Ranch. It's also the setting. Hundred-year-old oaks and madrones tower above rustic farm buildings. From "The Viewpoint" you can see seven counties. For a break after Christmas tree shopping, a pleasant picnic area is available. Bring your picnic lunch or snacks to enjoy the crisp clean winter air and fresh forest fragrance. On weekends hot dogs, snacks and drinks are available at the snack bar.
Year after year people from all around Santa Cruz County, and from all over the San Francisco Bay Area make Crest Ranch the place they buy their Christmas tree.

After moving from Chicago in 1956, getting their Christmas tree at Crest Ranch became a treasured tradition for the whole family.
