Cut Your Own Christmas Tree Farms Near Charlotte, NC - Updated December 2014

Cut Your own Christmas tree farm

It's the holiday season, and many families have a tradition of decorating a Christmas tree.  This year, why not cut your own Christmas tree instead of purchasing a pre-cut Christmas tree at a tree stand?  There are lots of "choose and cut" Christmas tree farms near Charlotte, NC - you can find one as close as 45 minutes away, or make a day trip of it and travel to the mountains of NC to find a great Christmas tree farm.

Many of the farms below offer a variety of choose and cut Christmas trees, including Fraser Fir, Carolina Sapphire, Eastern Red Cedar, White Pine, Virginia Pine, and Leyland Cypress.  You can bring your own saw, or some farms provide saws for their customers.  It's a great idea to call the Christmas tree farm before you venture out - double check their times and make sure that the type/height of tree that you want is still available.

we don't have any of those places here and I think it might be a little far for us to come out and cut our tree down...

Hahaha!  LOL!  Yes, I imagine that would be a long way to go!  It's a fun thing to do, though!

Hi Melissa, we cut our own tree for the first time last year and loved every minute of it. I can't imagine going back to a fake one. Really looking forward to going back to the X-Mas tree farm! You have quite a few to choose from around Charlotte.

Hi Andrea!  We've never cut our own, but this may be the year, now that I've done all this research.  I imagine it's great fun and I'm really looking forward to it!

That sounds like fun.  We are supposed to get six inches of snow tomorrow night into Sunday.  I hope everyone has their trees or get them early on Saturday.

Have a great weekend!
