My tree generally comes out of its box in the attic -- for a lot of reasons. Truth be told, I prefer a fresh cut tree, but I wrestle with my conscience over dragging one into the house to cover it in a lot of glitter and watch it die. I try to compromise, with the artificial tree and fresh greenery, like wreaths and garlands. Trader Joe's has incredible prices on nice wreaths and greenery, and holiday plants like narcissus and amaryllis.

We use a fake tree, but there is a place that sells cut trees at the intersection of Falls of Neuse and Raven Ridge Road in N. Raleigh. The sign says "Booger Mountain Christmas Trees"!

If I did buy a real tree I would probably buy it from them just beacuase of the name. It cracks me up everytime I see that sign!

I'm not sure what to make of that lot. It's still there, but I would be surprised if you could find a suitable Christmas tree there. The owner seems to have let it go, and I'm waiting for it to be plowed under to make room for a new restaurant (which would be sad, because I love that Carrboro has a year-round tree lot...)

We were in Raleigh this weekend and my 7 year old son saw a sign for Booger Mountain Christmas Trees. After he read the sign aloud both he and my 4 year old daughter had a laughing fit for about 15 mins. We all had a good belly laugh over that one.

There are two tree lots here on Morrisville Carpenter Road -- Ken's Nursery has some nice trees, as does Mr. Ferrell, on his farm. Both places are easy to spot from the road. Husband says he isn't sure, but he thought Ken's Nursery has trees that can be planted, as does perhaps Family Garden Supply on Hwy 55 towards Apex. They also have lovely things in their Christmas shop/area inside.

Out of curiousity, what are people paying for their live trees? We used to live in MA- cut down our Fraser Firs in NH (any size 5-15ft) for $40. We bought 6.5 ft fraser fir from a tree lot in WF last year for $85 (yikes).

I love going to Patterson Mill Country Store on Farrington Road off Hwy. 54 on the Durham/Chapel Hill border. The trees a beautiful and the country store is such a fun step back in time!

Anyone seen any balsam firs in the Triangle region? May be impossible since it only grows up north. We've always had one and couldn't bear to have any other; most fragrant Christmas tree of all.
