North Carolina Christmas Trees: The Real Thing

Christmas trees love the climate around greater Asheville. According to the NC Department of Agriculture, almost 20% of natural Christmas trees are grown here in The Tarheel State. Much of this production takes place in our western mountains.

The industry is well established and is not a stranger to publicity. In November of this year, a Fraser Fir, from Laurel Springs, NC, was chosen as the 2007 White House Tree.

The NC Christmas Tree Association provides information on everything from cultivation and environmental issues to proper care of real trees in the home. Readers can search for "cut your own" locations, or find retail lots on that site as well. Not a bad idea for a weekend drive.

There is also a National Christmas Tree Association, which provides a good amount of information, including the ability to search for trees by state.

In the end, be safe, use the links on proper care of natural trees, and visit the National Safety Council's tree page, for a Christmas Tree Checklist.
