One of my favourite days during the Holiday season is not an actual holiday itself, but the day my family does our tradition of cutting down our Christmas tree! I have been doing this for as long as I can remember and it’s such a special time. We work together as a family to seek and agree on that perfect tree to bring home. With that being said not all families have the ability or time to cut their own tree down; so I’ve also included list of where you can find pre-cut live trees. After all when it comes to Christmas trees you just can’t beat the real thing.
Live Tree Care
Once it’s cut and inside, it’s up to you to give your tree the proper care it needs to survive.
Please Note: Masks are mandatory. We ask all customers and their families to maintain social distancing from other groups while on the hunt for your perfect tree.
