About Us

For over 55 years we have been one of El Dorado County’s best Family operated “Choose and Cut” Tree Farms. Make your way through our 9 Acre farm with your family and find your perfect tree. When you have found it just yell “Cutter!” and we will be there to cut it for you or show you where you or the kids can cut it down.

Christmas Pine Tree

Tip #1


Displaying trees in water in a traditional reservoir type stand is the most effective way of maintaining their freshness and minimizing needle loss problems.

Tip #2


Make a fresh cut to remove about a 1/2-inch thick disk of wood from the base of the trunk before putting the tree in the stand. Make the cut perpendicular to the stem axis.

Tip #3


To display the trees indoors, use a stand with an adequate water holding capacity for the tree. As a general rule, stands should provide 1 quart of water per inch of stem diameter. Devices are available that help maintain a constant water level in the stand.

Tip #4


Keep displayed trees away from sources of heat (fireplaces, heaters, heat vents, direct sunlight). Lowering the room temperature will slow the drying process, resulting in less water consumption each day.


Carson Ridge Evergreens Christmas Tree Farm is within easy driving distance from the Bay Area, Sacramento, and South Lake Tahoe. Many families arrive early, choose their tree and continue the adventure by bringing a picnic and visiting nearby apple farms, wineries and breweries along the Apple Hill route. We pride ourselves on being a full-service El Dorado County tree farm. Employees are available to help as much as you want. We provide the trees, saws, packaging and twine plus greenery and candy canes with your tree purchase. All this in the beautiful Apple Hill area of El Dorado County.
