    Where You Can Buy A Christmas Tree In Chicago (MAP)

  • PLSS Bowmanville

    I would love to support local but my Home Depot trees are around $35 for a 6'-7' blue spruce and live forever. I recently heard that the Christmas tree Miracle-Gro additive is amazing, I plan to pick some up this year.

  • Helen R Portage Park resident since 1983

    I was very pleased with my tree from Meinke's. I've also had some luck at Menard's and Home Depot, but that's hit or miss. Why not make a day of it and go out to cut your own?
