This should be fun! Where is your favorite place to buy a real Christmas Tree in the area? What is your favorite kind of tree? Who has the best price around? I look forward to reading the responses.

Sorry, I can't make any local recommendations on tree lots; I always go to my favorite choose and cut, Twin Pines on Hwy 221 between Linville and Pineola in Avery County, NC.

I HOPE no one recommends a fake tree for "environmental" reasons. Christmas trees, most of them anyway, are a cultivated crop and renewable resource. Most tree growers in western NC are using better practices now, with fewer or no pesticides and herbicides. The tree industry provides a livelihood for a lot of people in a region where good-paying jobs are virtually non-existent. Off my soapbox now.

I figured i'd bring this post back from the dead instead of making a new one. Where does everyone get their trees from?

If there is such a thing as a cut your own tree farm here, I would do that. Coming from an area that supplies a lot of the country with Christmas trees, I can tell you that many, many, of them are cut and on the trucks by early Oct.

Here is an article that list a few Christmas Tree farms. The mountains north of Greenville have numerous tree farms where you can go cut your own.

We've made a tradition of going to Boyd Tree Farm just outside Waynesville/Maggie Valley:

Boyd Mountain Cabins Rentals in Maggie Valley & Waynesville North Carolina

It makes a nice half-day family trip, and then we usually stop in Asheville for a nice lunch or dinner. And, it's a pretty drive up there...
