Buy Live and Local This Christmas!

Red Cedar Christmas Tree
Keep the holidays real this year and support North Carolina farmers by purchasing a North Carolina grown, live cut Christmas tree! From the adventure of picking the perfect tree to the fragrance a live tree brings into your home, you cannot beat the lasting memories and enjoyable experiences real trees create for the entire family. There are a couple of options when it comes to buying a live tree. These include purchasing a pre-cut tree that has been shipped from the NC mountains or visiting a local tree farm and choosing your own.
