Holiday Guide: Let the Tree Hunt Begin, Muskego

Plenty of pines to choose from around the city, and in many shapes and sizes to fit your home.

Well before Thanksgiving, we spotted the Christmas tree lot signs popping up around town and wanted to make it easier for you to find them.

It's likely we'll add to this list, so stay tuned and happy hunting!

- well decked out and trees just delivered, the truckloads left behind hundreds of balsam, fraser, and Canaan pine, which is a hybrid balsam/fraser. Owners say it offers the scent of a balsam and the greener color of a fraser. All trees come from Shawano, WI. They also sell wreaths, pointsettias and Christmas decor.

  • Price range: $25 and up, depending on the type and size of tree, with a 5-13' range available.
  • Hours: Thursday, Friday 9am-6pm; Saturday & Sunday 8am-4pm
  • Contact: 414-422-0315

Cut Your Own on Parker Drive - just south of Muskego High School off of Racine Ave., this lot is one of a few that allow the 'Clark Griswold' in you out.  Grab a bow saw, and choose from balsam and fraser.

  • Price range: $25 and up
  • Hours: weekends only, no specific hours posted

Hein's - a cut your own lot on Tess Corners Drive near the Muskego/Franklin border, it's going to require a little more walking, and open date is still tenative. However, it does have taller trees for homes with higher ceilings.  (Editor's pick, mainly because I prefer their balsams, which allow for space inside the tree to string lights and hang additional ornaments.

Price range: $25 any tree on the lot; pay at the house, please

Hours: generally 9am to dusk

- the Fisher's bring in the boughs from Medford so if you're not up to trudging through snow to cut your own, take advantage of a selection of trees just feet from your car. Balsam and fraser firs are available.

  • Price range: balsams averaging around $30 and frasers starting at $40.
  • Hours: same as the store, Monday-Saturday 9am - 9pm, Sunday 9am-6pm.
