It’s getting to be that time again — time to plan a trip to one of the counties many scenic tree farms to bring home that perfect Christmas tree. Of course, if you’re getting your tree now, it’s worth noting that firs and pines will generally keep their needles longer than spruce. Always double check hours and availability while planning your trip and note that many locations only take cash or check.
