You think about it every year. “Wouldn’t it be fun to head up to the mountains and bring home a real Christmas tree this year?” But something gets in the way, and you end up at the local tree lot or pull the stand and branches down from the attic and dream of next year.
Well, “next year” is here, and this is your opportunity to make some Christmas magic happen. It’s easier than you think to find and bring home your tree! Here’s how.
Find your fave
The North Carolina Christmas Tree Association makes it simple to find the perfect tree to make your holiday bright. Visit their page and select from Fraser Firs, White Pines, Blue Spruce, Concolor, Canaan and the list goes on and on.
You can also view which farms have wreaths, garland and other natural decorations to get you holiday ready in one stop. Plus, we see perfect holiday picture surrounded by majestic trees and rolling hills. Be sure to call or contact the Christmas Tree farm you want to visit to ensure they will be open and ready for you to come by!
Enjoy the day
A scenic drive to the North Carolina mountains to find your tree is an adventure everyone is going to love – including the little ones. Some Christmas Tree farms have events, fun things and yummy treats. You might even get a visit from the big guy himself.
Of course, it is best to call before you get in the car to see what activities will be happening and make sure the Clauses can make it. We have visions of the perfect tree on the car and tired and happy kids in the backseat. Holiday perfection.
Support NC farmers
North Carolina produces more than 19 percent of the Christmas Trees in the county. In fact, the North Carolina Christmas Tree Industry is ranked second in the nation in the number of trees harvested and sold. And you can find Fraser Firs all over the world including the Caribbean Islands, Mexico, Canada, Bermuda and Japan. Lucky for you, these famous trees are right down the road and a memorable trip away.
Make a day of it and add a new tradition to the season. We can’t think of a better way to spend a winter day than bundled up in the crisp mountain air searching for the perfect tree. Pack the family, bring the friends and the selfie stick and start your season off right.
