Family Traditions: Tagging a Tree

[ 2 ] November 24, 2013 |

christmas-tree-forestTis’ the season to begin thinking about buying a Christmas tree!  Several local Christmas tree farms are open/opening soon for tagging and begin selling the weekend after Thanksgiving.  Many of these local farms will net the tree for you, as well as help you load the tree onto your car, making the whole experience even easier.  As well as offering beautiful festive greenery, many farms offer crafts, pony or wagon rides as wells as visits from Santa and refreshments.  Most farms are only open on weekends so call ahead to confirm opening times and activities.
