With Thanksgiving now upon us it’s time to start thinking about the upcoming holiday season. “O Christmas tree! O Christmas tree! How lovely are your branches!”
Nothing is more festive than having a real Christmas tree to decorate your home.
Fortunately, Carroll County is home to numerous Christmas tree farms opening their doors the day after Thanksgiving to welcome the holiday season.
Many farms also offer handmade wreaths, swags, roping, greens, pre-cut trees and live balled and burlap trees. The scent of a fresh-cut tree adds a distinctive aroma to the home during the holidays and trees are 100% recyclable.
Tree types available from Carroll County farms include Blue Spruce, Canaan Fir, Concolor Fir, Douglas Fir, Fraser Fir, Norway Spruce, White Pine, Scotch Pine, Serbian Spruce, Bosnian Pine and Balsam Fir. Various sizes are offered including cathedral height trees.
Many farms provide saws, tree shaking and baling, food and drink and other family-oriented activities.
Grab your warm clothes, boots, gloves and hats and venture to a Carroll County Christmas tree farm this holiday season. Tree farms open in November and continue through Christmas. Please check listings for specific times.
The brochure “Christmas Trees and Holiday Greens in Carroll County, Maryland 2008” is now available online at www.carrollag.org under the promotional material section and through the Carroll County Department of Economic Development, public libraries, the Tourism Office and Visitor Center.
