Some of my most vivid memories as a child were the adventures with my parents to cut your own Christmas tree farms. I do not use the word ‘adventures’ lightly. One year we ended up in the bed of a flat bed truck as the owner drove us up the side of the mountain. As a kid I giggled and screamed as we held on for dear life. Looking back with my ‘mom goggles,’ I wonder how my Mother ever let us on that truck.
For those who love a fresh cut Christmas tree, we have put together a guide to where to buy fresh Christmas trees, as well as cut-your-own Christmas trees near you at local Christmas tree farms in and around the Atlanta metro area. Be sure to call before you head out to make sure they still have trees available.
