The 2022 Season of Cheer: Hunter Tree Farm in Wedgwood

Take a stroll in Wedgwood to enjoy the smell of evergreens, the twinkle of lights and the sounds of music at the Hunter Tree Farm, 7744 35th Ave NE, next to the post office.  The Christmas tree lot is set up like a magical forest which comes to life at the holiday season.

The Hunter family began selling Christmas trees at a retail site in the Northgate area in the 1950s.  When that site was lost to impending freeway construction, the Hunters found a new, receptive market in the Wedgwood neighborhood in northeast Seattle.  Hunters sold Christmas trees at the corner of NE 85th Street for a few years until they were able to acquire the present lot nearest to NE 80th Street.

Each year Wedgwood enjoys the holiday spirit at this locally-owned business.  The tree lot is open from 9 to 9 daily, through December 23, 2022.
