For many people, the holiday season isn’t really upon us until the tree is up, lit, and loaded with ornaments. But before you drag your dusty artificial tree down from the attic or head out to a lot where rows of pre-cut trees have been standing sentry for who only knows how long, consider visiting a nearby Christmas tree farm to choose and chop your own tree. Not only does getting your tree from a local Christmas tree farm give you a sense of ownership over your holiday decor, it can also become a highly anticipated annual tradition the whole family will love. And bonus? You’ll be supporting local farmers.
