It’s not too late to get your home in the holiday spirit with a handpicked Christmas tree. Here in North Carolina, we’re blessed with the best Christmas tree there is, the Fraser fir (we’re not biased at all). Set out to find the tree that’s calling your name, all while having some holiday fun, at one of these four tree lots near Charlotte.

Snowflake Village

More than just your typical tree lot, Snowflake Village aims to provide customers with a memorable tree buying experience. First, find your tree ranging from 7 feet to 12 feet. Add in some greenery like live wreaths, table toppers, garland, or swags. Then, if you’re looking for an easy family photo option, head over to the holiday photo session area, where you’ll capture the holiday scene, and merry smiles, at Snowflake Village.

Phil Simpson’s Christmas Trees & Pumpkins

Pumpkin patch turned Christmas tree lot — what more could you ask for in a little family-owned farm? Simpson’s has an excellent, fresh selection of North Carolina’s Fraser fir trees to make your own. In addition, they have live wreaths that you can dress up with bows or other goodies.

Cedar Lake Tree Farm

Located out at Iron Station, Cedar Lake Tree Farm is a tradition you need to start … now. This tree farm has been serving up holiday traditions and family memories since 1992, with a large selection of freshly-cut Fraser fir trees available. Not only is there plenty of trees and greenery to look through, but there are also animals, warm drinks, and you might even catch a glimpse of the big man in red if you’re lucky.

Grace Tree Farm

If you’re looking for a U-Pick option, Grace Tree Farm it is. Family-owned and operated, this farm gives you the option to cut down your very own tree from a nice variety of types, including white pine, Leyland cypress, Carolina sapphire, and arborvitae. If you’d like a fresh Fraser fir, they’ve got those, too, plucked straight from the North Carolina mountains.

It’s time to pick out that tree and get her decorated before the red suit man makes his visit! For more holiday tips, check out Cielo’s blog.
