Santa's Forest & Nursery

Santa’s Forest & Nursery is a choose and cut farm in the southern end of Suffolk. We have been planting trees since 2000 but only open since 2006.

This year, we are going to open Daily. starting the Friday after Thanksgiving. 9:00am until 5:00pm

We are planting every year but it will take a few years to build the tree inventory back up. We are, however, going to bring in fresh cut Fraser Firs from the mountains of Virginia. Up to 15 to feet We also make our own  Wreaths and Garland on site.  Free Hot Chocolate, Coloring books and Candy Canes for the kids. Santa’s assistants will be happy to shake, bale, and carry your tree to your car. We supply saws, and twine.

Again this year we are going to offer B & B (balled and burlapped) trees. The trees this year are Austrain Pine, Blue Spruce and White Pine they are hardy for our zone.  they will be beautiful in your yard for years to come.  Choose a B & B for the holidays, and then plant it after the season ends. These trees at 5’-7’ tall and prices range from $60.00 to $85.00.

Sorry we can't guarantee these trees, once they leave the farm, we can't oversee how they are cared for. 

Any questions please call Mike Helvestine at 757-986-2213 or email us at

ps. porta potty on site

Business Hours: We will be open Daily from 9 to 5, starting the Friday afterThanksgiving through Dec. 20th.

Come early in the season - due to the great number of customers we can’t guarantee the volume of trees will last through the selling season. So come early and get a good one.

This year again we are offering for our Military Families, to be able to come out tag and pay for your tree and come cut it down when your family are all together. Last year we were selling trees in Febuary. So celebrate Christmas when you want. You will only have to call us and make the arragements.

We accept cash or checks for payment -- sorry, no credit or debit cards.
