It has come to my attention that there are 2 kinds of people: Those that decorate for Christmas the second October ends, and those who like to say "Don't forget about Thanksgiving!" and wait until after to decorate. No matter what your family tradition is, I think we can all agree that 2020 could always use a little more cheer. So when you are ready to hunt down that perfect Holiday Tree you can find information on your local Tree Farms and Christmas Tree Lots right here. Bonus: These all make for great photo backdrops for your Christmas Cards.
Buying a REAL North Carolina grown Christmas Tree is a great way to support local a family-owned farm and business, and it's actually GOOD for the environment. Typically 2-3 seedlings are planted for every Christmas Tree harvested, and on average it takes 7 years to mature enough for harvest. Real trees are often grown in soil that wouldn't support other crops, and they are a renewable, recyclable resource.
I'll add more Christmas Tree Lots as we see them open- if you know of one email me to have it added to the list!
