About Us:

Ned Dollinger and his father John established the Christmas Tree Farm in 1956 and have been open every winter since. The original farm site is now part of the first nine holes of the Lake Carroll Golf Course. In 1971 Ned and his son John began planting trees at the Payne Road farm after the Lake Carroll development began.  John & Janie Dollinger currently operate the tree farm with their son Mark, daughter-in-law Shanna, and grandsons Cooper & Maddex. Watch for Cooper and Maddex, fifth generation tree farmers, passing out Magic Reindeer food.
