As of 10:30 a.m. on Friday, December 6 our tree status is as follows:
In the field to cut:
Scotch - very limited selection
White - limited selection, trees available are under 7 feet tall
Canaan - very limited selection, tree available are under 6 feet tall
Fraser - very good selection ranging from 5 to 10 feet tall
We recognize this is very early in the season to have such a limited selection in the field and we apologize that this is the case. Please understand that it takes 8 years to grow a Christmas tree, and it is extremely difficult to predict the demand that far into the future. We did not expect to gain as many customers as we have in the last 3-4 years. Our only quick solution is to order more pre-cut trees to try to provide a tree for each of our customers.
The good news: While land has also been a limited resource for growing trees, we have recently found a solution that will help alleviate this problem, and have started planting nearly double what we have planted in the past. However, you will not see this increase in trees for 8 years when these newly planted trees reach maturity - and that's as long as Mother Nature doesn't send any severe droughts or floods our way during the life of these trees.
We share in your frustration as we do not like being unable to provide our loyal customers with a high quality selection of trees. Whether you find a tree from our farm or decide to look elsewhere this year, we hope you keep it real and have a very Merry Christmas!

Welcome to Dull’s Tree Farm, where you can "Brighten up your Christmas with a REAL Dull Tree!
Please check the Tree Status page for updates on trees available at the farm. We were blessed with several customers this past weekend and are getting really low on several varities.
Christmas is a time for families and traditions and we’re dedicated to helping you and your family start the Christmas season right!
Our mid-1800s era Boone County farmstead, just 40 miles northwest of Indianapolis, overlooks 25 beautiful acres planted in a half-dozen popular varieties of trees. In the field we have Scotch Pine, White Pine and Canaan Fir for you to choose and harvest.
And, of course, if you’d rather not go to the field to cut, we have a pre-cut lot where we offer premium Fraser Fir, West Coast Noble Fir, Concolor Fir and Nordman Fir trees. We also have some of our own trees on the precut lot.
Bring the whole family for an outing that might just become an annual tradition marking the beginning of the Christmas season.
We’ll give you a saw, a tree cart and directions to the harvestable trees on the farm.
Once you’ve cut your tree, we’ll shake out the loose needles and bale it for the drive home. All trees are basal pruned before leaving the farm so they’ll fit easily into a tree stand. When you’re ready, we’ll load and tie your tree onto your vehicle, all at no extra cost.
All trees are processed through our newly renovated barn. Kids and young at heart will want to check out the loft of the barn with a slide exit. Don't forget to stop by and visit with the farm animals. They love attention!
We also have premium quality tree stands available for purchase. The folks who buy them turn out to be our best tree stand salespeople.
But don’t leave without visiting our wreath barn – a restored post-and-beam corncrib where we make fresh wreaths and custom decorate them to suit your taste. Bring your porch planters that look so sad in the wintertime and we’ll fill them full of real Dull Christmas greens for you.
We have white pine garland as well as custom made garland for sale and we can make grave blankets, mantelpieces, mailbox decorations – whatever you would like from our fresh greens.
The Stone Cabin Inn is where you can warm yourself by the crackling fire and play a game of checkers (corn cob style) on a century-old checkerboard in the Inn, or snooze in the rocking chair. Enjoy our hot beverages and snack items as you relax in the Stone Cabin Inn. Throughout the rest of the year the Stone Cabin Inn is a bed and breakfast as well as a meeting area for groups up to 30 persons. Visit the Stone Cabin Inn page for rental details and rates.
The gift shop is an original, restored log cabin with a delightful array of select ornaments, nativities, Santas, snowmen and many more desirable and unique items. And, yes, you can still get a piece of candy for a penny!
Sunday, December, December 8th, is a special day at the farm as the big woolly dogs of the South Central Newfoundland Club pull your tree from the field to the processing area. It’s a great photo opportunity! You’re invited to support their Newfoundland rescue efforts with your tips and donations.
The day after Thanksgiving, November 29, is the first day of our season. But we’re also here for the procrastinators, right up to December 21st.
Come on out to Central Indiana’s best cut-your-own tree farm and brighten up your Christmas with a REAL Dull Tree!
