We are heading to Andrews, NC this weekend.(from Charlotte). We'd like to go to a "cut your own" Christmas tree farm. Does anyone have any suggestions where we can find one between Andrews and Charlotte? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Find a Tree
North Carolina Christmas Tree Association

http://www.ncchristmastrees.com/county.asp

North Carolina has an estimated 50 million Fraser fir Christmas trees growing on over 25,000 acres.

Fraser fir represents over 95% of all species grown in North Carolina.

Fraser fir is grown in the far Western North Carolina counties which include Alleghany, Ashe, Avery, Buncombe, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, Macon, Madison, Mitchell, Swain, Transylvania, Watauga and Yancey.

There are over 1,600 North Carolina growers.

The North Carolina Christmas Tree Industry is ranked second in the nation in number of trees harvested.

North Carolina produces over 19% of the Real Christmas Trees in the U.S.

The North Carolina Fraser fir has been judged the Nation's best through a contest sponsored by the National Christmas Tree Association and chosen for the official White House Christmas tree 10 times (more than any other species).

The North Carolina Fraser fir Christmas tree is the most popular Christmas tree in North America and is shipped into every state in the U.S. as well as the Caribbean Islands, Mexico, Canada, Bermuda, Japan and other points all over the world.

The North Carolina Fraser fir has soft, pleasant-to-touch needles, incomparable needle retention, long lasting aroma, and more pliable yet stronger branches for even the heaviest ornaments.

I forget which road it's on, but there is a sign posted when entering Ashe county that proclaims it "The Christmas Tree Capital of the US". It is a crop that seems to have replaced many of the tobacco patches, though it's probably just as destructive of natural resources as tobacco. At least you don't get cancer from Christmas trees . Drive up into the mountains and you'll see whole swatches of hillside denuded and replanted in Fraser Fir.

We were driving up 421 and past Boone the weekend after Thanksgiving. I swear, heading in the other direction, every other car had a Christmas tree tied to the roof -- sometimes 2 or 3. It was such a nice weekend, it looked like families were making an outing of going to cut their own Christmas tree

I love them ! That's where we have always gone in the past but this year the kids wanted to cut a frasher fir so that's why we were heading up to the mountains.

We found a place in Sylva (The Smith Tree Farm)that will be on our route home so we're all set!

Thank you all for your prompt replies....I appreciate it .

Christmas trees don't grow in the Piedmont area of the state. They're grown more towards the mountain region.
