Welcome to our 2nd annual Christmas Tree Pull List!
If you’re looking for a festive way to kick of the holiday season you might want to check out your local Christmas tree farm and see what type of fun events kick off at the end of November.
There’s a handful of Christmas tree farms across that the country that will proudly be hosting events that include dogs, specifically Newfoundlands, who have volunteered their time to help haul your Christmas tree!
This is a great chance for you to get out and support your fellow Newfies, and if you’ve been looking to get a Newfoundland, this is a great way to see the breed in action and talk to many educated people who can help answer any questions that you might have.
Here’s a short list of some of the Christmas tree pull events that I’ve found going on over the next month:
Moore’s Tree Farm.
Located in Groton, New York. This event takes place Saturday, November 24th from 11am-2pm EST. Genesee Region Newfoundland Club will be there with their Newfies to haul your tree from the field to the processing area. All donations will benefit the NCA Newfoundland Dog Charitable Trust Rescue.

Located in Walwort, Wisconsin. The event takes place on Friday and Saturday, November 23rd-24th 11am-3pm. Newfies will be on hand to pull your tree from the field to the processing area. I’m not sure which club will be there representing the Newfies because one is not listed as of yet.

This is what I’ve found advertised so far if you know of any others please let me know and I will add it to the list.
If you’re lucky enough to be able to attend one of these events make sure to support the regional club by providing the Newfie who hauls your tree a tip or make a donation to the club. These Newfies are working hard for other Newfies!
