Choose and Cut Christmas Trees in (and Near!) the Triangle
There's no need to drive all the way to the mountains to find your ideal tree
So many families have made it a fun annual tradition to travel and choose their perfect Christmas tree and cut it (or have it cut) themselves. The great news is that this doesn’t mean you have to drive for hours each way to drive to the NC mountains-there are lots of options for choose and cut Christmas trees in and around the Triangle. Conditions vary and supplies are often limited, so be sure to double check before heading out to one of these family-favorite destinations.
