If you don’t have a tree yet, what are you waiting for? They’re quickly running out. So since it’s 2020 why not chop down your own Christmas tree? It’s the perfect way to show off the survivalist skills you learned this year! While you can easily find pre-cut trees around town or find a fake one at a store, why not try something different this year. Think of the memories you’ll make, the fresh air you’ll breathe, the satisfaction you’ll have after finding the perfect tree, and the pride you’ll feel after doing all the hard work yourself! Still not convinced? Many of the places listed below have hot chocolate, ornaments, and gifts for sale as well. It’s a perfect way to get a bunch of stuff crossed off your holiday list all at once!
Please call ahead to confirm hours, activities, and availability of trees.
