Christmas Tree

Sometimes picking out a live Christmas tree seems to be more of a chore than a nice family memory. Many places sell pre-cut pre-wrapped trees that make it easy to just grab and go... but can you really tell what the tree looks like when you buy it?

What if you get home and there is a big hole in the middle that ornaments can not hide?

There are many benefits to going to a tree farm and picking out the centerpiece of you holiday decor by hand. Aside from finding a tree with no holes, it can be fun to walk around and pick out your perfect tree with your loved ones.

Many tree farms allow dogs so the whole family can go and offer side activites for the kids.

So bundle up, gather everyone, get your hot chocolate ready and enjoy this list of tree farms near you that go out of their way to make your tree experience extra special.
