If you watch the news, then you may have heard about the possible Christmas tree shortage this year. There is a shortage, but I can tell you that there are a lot of places to get a tree!
If you’re up for a day trip and an adventure, the Christmas tree farms below provide a very unique and fun experience. You can either cut down your own tree or purchase a pre-cut tree.
Be sure to check the hours and special events for each Christmas tree farm. Some farms have events like Santa and face painting, but only during special times.
More than anything, have fun and be careful!
