Big Weekend For Christmas Trees

Christmas tree farms across North Carolina might be almost as busy as the shopping malls this weekend. The Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving are always the busiest for the Christmas tree industry, and choose-and-cut tree lots in the mountains of northwestern North Carolina have been preparing for the crowds. According to the North Carolina Christmas Tree Association, choose-and-cut farms have become more popular, especially in the last two years. About 125-thousand trees will be taken home from choose-and-cut farms in the state this year, with 90-thousand of those coming from western North Carolina. The tree association says 16-hundred North Carolina growers
produce about 50 (m) million Fraser fir trees.

There are several choose-and-cut tree farms in Eastern Carolina. You can find a list by clicking here
