Place to act like Paul Bunyan:

Riehle’s Tree Farm

The holidays are full of tradition, and it’s long been a tradition for families to make a trip to cut their own Christmas tree. One of the best places to take the family on a cut-your-own-tree trip is Riehle’s Tree Farm, S5944 Hwy. CI in Dousman.

“We open the day after Thanksgiving and close on Christmas Eve,” says John Riehle. The tree farm is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Riehle family began raising and selling Christmas trees in the late 1960s. In 1985, the family made it a full-time operation. “We have a greater variety of Christmas trees than many local tree farms, particularly with our fir trees,” says Riehle.

Depending on their chosen tree, customers at Riehle’s can park their car nearby for quick pickup, take a winter walk or even take a wagon ride.

Wreaths, garland and boughs are also available on site along with a selection of handmade crafts created by members of the Riehle family.
