It’s been almost a decade since we’ve put up a real Christmas tree. However, after years of fluffing dusty fake branches, the idea of a real tree is starting to sound refreshing. And of course I know the kids would love the experience of visiting a Christmas tree farm!
If putting up a real Christmas tree is on your Christmas bucket list, then this post is for you. Local readers shared their favorite places to find real Christmas trees on the Haute Happenings facebook page. Thanks to their input, I now have this post to share with you!
We’re happy to share the local information along with this disclaimer: we’re not qualified to advise you on what’s best for your family, friends, or public health in the time of Covid-19! Have fun, stay healthy, and make good choices!
