There’s something to be said for choosing and cutting down your own Christmas tree from the long lines of evenly spaced specimens at a real live Christmas tree farm. Not only does this method allow you the freedom to select the perfect tree to suit your family’s preferences, it also gives you a sense of pride and ownership as you display something you have put forth such effort to bring into your home. It will be there for the duration of the holiday season, after all, and it is arguably the star of the show when it comes to Christmas decor. Therefore, you want it to be just right. That’s what Murphy’s Christmas Tree Farm specializes in – trees that are just right.
Murphy’s Christmas Tree Farm
Murphy’s Christmas Tree Farm has been providing Tuscaloosa-area tree shoppers with their ideal holiday evergreen for 31 years. The friendly growers proudly sell their labor of love in the form of Murray Leyland Cypress, Naylor Blue Cypress, Green Giant Cypress, Arizona Cypress, and Fraser Fir. All cypress trees are priced at $6 per foot, and Fraser Firs are priced between $70 and $130 depending on height.
The farm is open Saturday from 10 a.m. until dark, Sunday from 1 p.m. until dark, and Monday through Friday 3 p.m. until dark. Murphy’s also offers delivery and setup options.
Wayne Murphy planted his first 500 Christmas trees on Bear Creek Road back in April of 1987. This was the start of realizing his dream, the results of which can be seen at either of the farm’s two thriving locations today (the first located at 7209 Mill Way, the second at 14442 Preacher Lee Road). Says Murphy of the skepticism he received from family and friends in the beginning, “It taught me to never give up on a project that I see as being a worthy and honorable pursuit. I was in it the good years and the bad years. Years which taught me to suck it up because I had been blessed in so many ways.”
Seems like a wonderful dream to help keep alive.
