I saw trees at Lowes Home Improvement on Capital Boulevard today for $19.95. I've never seen them that low. Great selection at this time of year. Wonderful scent.

I guess they're making up for low prices by selling the branches they cut off when they prepare a tree after you buy it. I used to ask for the branches that were all over the ground and use them in floral arrangements and swags. They were free because they'd just throw them out. Now they sell the branches in plastic bags.

I just bought a 7-8' last night from Home Depot for $39.99. The price range at Home Depot was quite reasonable and the trees were in good shape. We also priced trees at Holland Farm (beautiful trees) off Green Level and they were about at the going rate for a non-chain store offering. We were looking at 8-9' for $80-85. I also took a look at the small collection of trees at the family owned nursery on 55 near Apex line (I forget the name but it's a lovely place!) and their prices were also in line with the $10/ft range others are reporting. Food Lion had all trees at $29.95, but they all looked a little roughed up to me. If you can find a good one, that's a great price.

I would like to hear about prices from the Farmer's Market. I'm hearing a lot about the tree selection but I'd like a better idea of prices. This is our first year in a long time having a "live" tree and what we do next year will depend a lot on this year's experience.

This is a helpful thread. Thanks!

I spent $60 at the Farmers Market for 8' tree. It is a beauty! The cheapest I saw was about $40 for a standard sized tree, and up to $125 for really large ones.

I was at the Farmer's Market today and saw SO many beautiful ones!!!! The smell was amazing, the trees and wreaths were gorgeous, and supporting local farmers is always a good idea!

There was 1 guy undercutting everyone else at the Farmers Market. The tree we got would have easily been 65 at the other stands.
