The holidays are officially here and it is time to festively deck the halls. First and foremost, the most important task at hand is finding the PERFECT Christmas tree. Forget about all those fake trees and stop searching the local lots for a tree that was cut weeks ago. Make a trip to Haywood County for the real deal: a beautiful NC grown Fraser Fir Christmas Tree. Not only will you create a timeless tradition like no other, but you can’t beat the sight and smell of a freshly cut Christmas tree straight from the heart of the NC Smoky Mountains.
The county is home to five locally owned and operated farms specializing in North Carolina Fraser Firs. People come from near and far just to find the perfect tree at one of these farms. Tree-seekers can search the mountainside for the ideal Christmas tree or choose a pre-cut tree of their liking. Prices typically start around $35.00 and increase based on height. Other holiday necessities can be purchased onsite such as fresh hand-made wreaths and garland. Some of the farms even provide tasty holiday treats like hot apple cider to keep you warm on your festive search.
