The Jaycox Christmas Tree Farm in Duxbury is a town-owned tree farm. It is open seasonally.


The Town of Duxbury purchased this farm in 2004 with Community Preservation funds. Each year on the first weekend in December, the town opens the property for harvest and purchase of holiday trees. Types available include: Fraser Fir, White Spruce, Blue Spruce, and Concolor Fir.

Prior to European contact, the Mattakeeset band of the Massachuseuk (or Massachusett) Native American tribe lived for thousands of years in the North River watershed. Their village included most of today’s Pembroke and Hanson. Meanwhile the Patuxet band of the Wampanoag tribe inhabited the Jones River watershed, and the area now known as Kingston, Plymouth and Duxbury. This property lies within the upper portion of the South River watershed — right between those two territories. It’s possible that both tribes utilized the area.

To learn more about local Native American tribes, we encourage you to interact with their members. The Mashpee Wampanoag, the Herring Pond Wampanoag, the Mattakeeset band of the Massachusett, and the Massachusett tribe at Ponkapoag all share information on their websites.
