Finding the perfect Christmas tree is a wonderful tradition for many families. Charlotte offers Christmas tree adventures for those who want to choose and cut their own tree and tree stands for those who prefer to choose a family tree without the lumberman experience.
At Little Switzerland Fraser Firs, you choose the tree that you want from an extensive selection, and they cut (or you cut with our hand saw) and prepare the tree (including baling) for travel to your home.
Little Switzerland Fraser Firs will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and from 1:00-5:00 PM on Sundays for the 2012 Christmas Tree season:
Tom Sawyer’s Christmas Tree Farm and Elf Village Tree Farm Open DAILY 9am-5pm until Dec 23rd
Sundays 11am-5pm. The Elf Village is open Saturday 9am-5pm & Sunday 11am-5pm.
When you arrive at the Farm you first decide which Christmas tree to choose and cut or select a pre-cut tree. Then, on weekends, from Friday thru Monday, the elves and Santa return from the North Pole to roll out the fun. At the Elf Village kids listen to elf tales, create Christmas crafts, write then mail Christmas wish lists…or tell it to Santa in person.
There are several tree lots in the Charlotte area to take the family and choose the very best Christmas tree for 2012.
Simpson’s tree lot (Pineville-Matthews Road near Johnston Road)

Maybe you would like to support a small business or charity and want to buy a tree from a church.It’ll cost you more to do that, but you’re supporting a church and maybe a charity as well.At the Saint Vincent de Paul Catholic Church lot, for example, all proceeds go to CSS Pregnancy and Adoption Support Programs. The lot at St. Ann’s Church in Dilworth proceeds benefit seven organizations, including Holy Angels, Friendship Trays and Rachel’s Vineyard. St. Gabriel Catholic Church (Providence Road) also has a tree lot.
The perfect Christmas tree quest is an important family adventure and easily accomplished with the many choice tree sites available in the Charlotte area!
