Like an eccentric uncle, the holidays often sneak up on people and leave tinsel wherever they go. Deck the halls with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of holiday trees, wreaths, and gifts at Forever Green Tree Farm in St. Maries. This Groupon is valid November 25–December 18.
Certified sustainable by the American Tree Farm System, Forever Green Tree Farm rallies holiday spirit with sweeping fields of live trees and a 1,500-square-foot holiday-gift shop on a farm cultivated by the Cooke family for more than 25 years. Customers can peruse a selection of freshly cut evergreens or head into farm fields to topple their own festive foliage, and staff members stand by to assist with felling rebellious saplings or chasing off feral partridges in pear trees. The sweet-smelling firs, spruces, and pines stand at heights ranging from 2 feet ($15) to 14 feet ($121), tailoring holiday cheer to modest tabletops and lofty living rooms alike.
After toting back their timber, customers can sup on complimentary cider and cookies in the gift shop and browse a selection of handmade wreaths, tree stands, and local artisan crafts. In the first two weekends of December, Santa arrives to pose and parley with hopeful children ($8/picture), and free sleigh rides and hayrides let families frolic across the farm on December 4 and 11. Because of its rural location, visitors may need to follow the website's driving directions to reach the festive farmstead.
