The Rocks

Here in northern New England, Fir trees thrive in the cool, moist climate, and there are some 500 Christmas tree farms across our two states.

This time of year, you're likely to see cars and pickup trucks heading home on the highways with fresh-cut Christmas trees tied to roofs or in the truck beds. Fraser firs, Korean firs, Balsam firs, and Spruce (ouch!)...

The Rocks serves as the pickup location for NH and VT for the Trees for Troops program.

Once we bale a tree, The Rocks staff will not be able to tie the tree to a vehicle. We will supply string, but customers will need to complete the task.
Watch this video from the National Christmas Tree Association to learn how to tie your tree to your vehicle!

The Rocks' Christmas Tree Farm will still be welcoming families and visitors this holiday for cut-your-own trees starting November 21, but to keep customers and staff as safe as possible will require advance reservations.

Visit The Rocks during sugar season for a hands-on maple experience including a guide to tapping a tree, boiling syrup and even tasting the final product!

Rows of Christmas trees are covered in snow in wintertime.

Vacation Packages

The Rocks has partnered with many of the area's best hotels and inns to offer two fabulous vacation packages annually: The New Hampshire Maple Experience in early Spring, and the Christmas Memory Package in November and December.

On February 13, 2019, a fire at The Rocks destroyed two historic buildings that we used for office space, programming, a gift shop and farm operations. In the wake of this devastating loss, the Forest Society has had an opportunity to rethink the vision for this iconic North Country destination.
