Christmas trees have been a part of life here since 1945. Donna's father, Albert, began selling trees on retail lots in the Chicago area. Originally just wild trees cut from the woods, the business has evolved to where it is today. In 1979 Albert and his wife Stella began planting trees on their former dairy farm. This provided control over the quality of their product. In 1985 Donna graduated from Michigan State University's Landscape and Nursery program. In 1995 they started the Christmas in the Country weekends that are still happening today. With the passing of Donna's parents, Wetthuhn Christmas Trees became a much loved part of Elmcrest Acres. Donna and Dave are proud to offer their trees on Dave's retail lot in Paletine Illinois and to select wholesale buyers, as well as opening the farm for Choose & Cut weekends.
