Here’s A List Of 10 Popular Christmas Tree Farms In East Texas
There's no need to buy and burn one of those pine-scented candles in your home to get you in the mood for Christmas, all you need is a fresh-cut tree from a local Christmas tree farm!
I have always wanted to but never have gone to a Christmas tree farm to harvest my very own Christmas tree. As a child, we sometimes used our artificial tree, but we went through a period of time when we went to the Christmas tree lot to pick out our tree, and a couple of times we got to choose one that was flocked with that white snow-like material.
Using an artificial tree or a real one is a personal choice and each has a list of pros and cons. However, having a 'real tree' as the Christmas tree is a family tradition for a lot of East Texans. Real trees can be purchased at a variety of locations - a Christmas tree lot on the corner or from the big box hardware or retailer or the grocery or convenience store sometimes, but often times you can't really see the condition of the tree because it's all wrapped up in netting. There is another way to get a real tree and that is from a local tree farm.
When you get a tree from a real farm you can see exactly what the tree looks like. Its height, shape and density - are just a few things that are important when it comes to picking out the right tree for you. Plus, you know that the tree was freshly cut and wasn't cut down weeks ago and shipped in on a truck.
