At Cassens tree farms we individually price each tree so you know the cost before you choose your tree. Each year we go through the fields and measure each tree to determine the height. We look at the fullness of the tree to determine if it is a perfect tree, an average tree, or perhaps a Charlie Brown tree. Based on the species, height and fullness, we assign a price and put a price tag on each tree available for sale. Trees without price tags are not for sale.
Following are the guidelines that we use to price the trees. Keep in mind that height is not the only factor in pricing the trees. For perfect trees, the cost is usually $5 more. For less than perfect trees, the price can be considerably less. Our trees start at $5 and usually everyone can find a tree that they like within their price range. Generally speaking, fir trees usually cost about twice as much as pine trees. However, in addition to species, the price also depends on height and fullness.
|Pine Trees||Fir Trees|
|< 6 feet||$15 to $20||$30 to $45|
|6 to 7 feet||$25 to $35||$50 to $65|
|7 to 8 feet||$35 to $45||$70 to $85|
|8 to 9 feet||$45 to $55||$90 to $105|
|9 to 10 feet||$55 to $65||$110 to $125|
We accept cash and checks at both of our tree farms. Our West Lafayette tree farm also accepts Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards. The cellular signal required for credit card payment is not very strong at the Old State Road 25 North tree farm. Thus, it is better to plan to pay by cash or check at that location.
Tree Baling, Drilling, and Tree Stands
At both the West Lafayette and Old State Road 25 North tree farms we offer tree baling for $3 which wraps your tree into a netting for easier handling. We also sell heavy duty tree stands that require the tree be drilled for the stand to attach to the tree. The year you buy a stand, the drilling is free. The following years the cost is $3 to have your tree drilled for the stand. You do not need to bring your stand back to the farm as it is better if you attach your stand at home. Stands range in cost from $12.50 to $35 depending on the size.
Our West Lafayette tree farm has a Christmas shop with numerous items for sale such as Christmas tree ornaments and seasonal decorations. We do not offer any food or beverages for sale at either of our tree farms, so please plan accordingly.
Wreaths, Swags, Garland, and Greens

Please note that we do not give away tree greens but we do have trees for sale starting at $5 if you want to cut your own tree for greens. We make grave blankets and grave pillows by custom order only. If you are interested in ordering a custom-made wreath, swag, grave blanket, or grave pillow, please contact Vicki Cassens at 765-412-6843.
