Choose-and-Cut Christmas Trees in (and Near!) the Triangle
Find your ideal tree at a local Christmas tree farm
Many families have made it an annual tradition to choose their perfect Christmas tree at a tree farm and cut it (or have it cut) themselves. You don’t have to drive for hours to get to the NC mountains—there are plenty of options for choose-and-cut Christmas trees in and around the Triangle. Unless otherwise noted, bow saws are available on site; no chainsaws are allowed.
Trees often sell out quickly, so get out and pick yours while you can!
