Christmas Tree Traditions
Finding and caring for a fresh tree can be a beloved tradition
North Carolina Fraser fir Christmas trees are the most popular live tree in North America, and this time of year they’re shipped from local growers to every state in the country (and often the White House). Bringing a live tree into your home can be a rewarding tradition, and proper care will ensure it stays fresh, fragrant and safe throughout the holiday season. Easy tips in the video above from the NC Christmas Tree Association show you how.
Interested in finding and felling a tree on your own? For many families, hand-picking a fresh tree at one of NC’s many Christmas tree farms is a beloved tradition. In addition to picturesque scenery and the rich, fragrant aroma of real trees, the farm experience often includes tasty hot cocoa and fun activities such as hayrides.
