The 2022 season at 4 E’s Trees is here! 4 E’s Trees is a family-owned business near Mt. Zion, IL. All of their trees come from their family tree farm, and 2022 marks their 57th year in business.

You can stop by and pick up your Christmas tree until December 12, 2022. 4 E's is closed on Thanksgiving.

4 E’s Trees is named after Frank and Marge Evans four sons: Don, Ron, Larry, and Steve. Ron Evans now runs the farm.

A few notes for the 2022 season:

  • Balsam trees are available
  • Due to dry weather conditions, short needle spruce buyers will not be able to return their tree, and their receipt will be marked as such
  • White pine and scotch pine are in limited quantity due to drought in recent years
  • There will be no tagging in the 2022 season
  • Outdoor port-a-potties are available for sanitary reasons
“My family began getting our Christmas trees from 4E's in about 1965. We always looked forward to the Saturday after Thanksgiving because that's when we tagged our tree. I remember tromping through your fields through snow and rain to find just the right tree and we always did.” –I. E., customer

Glenview Christmas Tree Farm

While not in Decatur, Glenview Christmas Tree Farm was in Macon County (Argenta, IL), so we thought we should provide in update.
