Clarks Hill Christmas Tree Farm is a family owned and operated business that was started in 1983. It is located near Clarks Hill South Carolina in Edgefield County. Seven different varieties of Christmas trees are grown on fifty acres.
In addition to Christmas trees, wreaths, garland, table centerpieces, and mailbox swags are sold. Wreaths are available in various sizes from 24" to 48". They can be purchased decorated or undecorated and with or without bows. Centerpieces are rectangular or round. Garland strands are sold in 12' lengths and can be connected for any length needed. Mailbox swags are adjustable to any size mailbox.
All of these decorations are available in several different varieties of fresh greenery.
Hayrides are provided to and from the field by tractor pulled wagons. Trees are transported back to the parking lot where they are shaken (by machine) to remove any loose needles. They are then netted and loaded into the customer's vehicle. This netting pulls the limbs closer to the trunk of the tree and makes it easier to transport and get inside the home. Netting is normally removed after the tree is placed in the stand.
Tours of the tree farm for school groups or other organizations can be scheduled on weekdays starting the week after Thanksgiving. Groups are given a hayride tour of the farm and a demonstration of the wreath making process. An enclosed building is available for groups desiring to bring snacks or eat lunch at the farm.
The concession is operated on weekends. Hot chocolate, cider, boiled peanuts, nachos, snacks, and cold drinks are available.
Tree stands and other accessories are available. Several different types of stands are available that make putting up a tree a very simple process. Trees can be drilled for stands that require a hole in the trunk.
Trees are available from 6' to 25'.
