LOOKING FOR THAT SPECIAL CHRISTMAS TREE EXPERIENCE?
North Carolina ranks No. 2 in the nation in Christmas trees harvested, producing about 19 percent of the country’s Christmas trees. Twelve North Carolina trees have stood in the White House — all of them Frasers. Wouldn’t you like to have one in your house this year? Two special places in the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina are listed here for you. (Both are pet friendly)
BOYD MOUNTAIN CHRISTMAS TREES – Listed #2 in the Top 20 Farms in the U.S. in the October 2018 Country Living Magazine, is in the Waynesville/Maggie Valley area just west of Asheville. The farm has been in the Boyd family for over 100 years, and continues to be a working farm with restored log cabins for rental. One visitor this week wrote: “We were there this morning! We picked out our 3 beautiful 🌲, they cut them down for us, wrapped them, and drilled the center hole at the base. Even enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate and cookies too!! We also bought the Santa’s Magic Water Spout. What a nice back saver. Thank you so much!!!” Others return year after year-one lady from Atlanta has been purchasing her tree at Boyd farm for 11 years.

Another enchanting place to choose your tree is at TOM SAWYER CHRISTMAS TREE & ELF VILLAGE – A twenty-seven year farm with over eighty acres dedicated to growing the finest Fraser Fir Christmas Trees that range from 3’ to 12’ in height. Perfect elevation at 3800ft and a cool water lake providing moist rain-forest-like air, at Lake Glenville just six miles from the village of Cashiers. Also an event venue, where many say “I Do”. Nestled among acres of Christmas Trees is a haven of tiny little elf-sized cottages – each with its own elfish decor. Every year, in late November, the Elf Village comes to life with holiday fun for kids of all ages.
