Christmas Trees 2021 – Things To Do Around NW Metro Altanta

Christmas Trees

Ready for a Christmas Tree? Thanksgiving is over, and now it is time to get ready for Christmas. If you haven’t heard, there will be a live AND artificial tree shortage this year (just another supply chain shortage), so if you want a live tree, better buy one before there are none! Check out where you can find a live Christmas Tree around NW Metro Atlanta.

There is nothing quite like the smell of fresh pine filling your home during the holiday season, and a real Christmas tree can do that better than any candle or air freshener. Having a real tree is a tradition for many families, but if you haven’t had one before and are considering it, there are a few things you should know before you take it on. Residents around our neighborhoods love decorating for the holidays.The most common Christmas Trees in Georgia are:

  • Arizona Cypress Strains
  • Cryptomeria
  • Green Giant
  • Leland Cypress
  • Murray Cypress
  • Red Cedar
  • Sand Pine
  • Virginia Pine
  • White Pine

Real Christmas Trees, Real Mess

Real trees are good for the earth. Often, Christmas Trees are grown on soil that doesn’t support other crops.

Repeated Cost Or One Time Cost?

Buying a “fake” tree is something you can invest in one year and use for many years to come. A real tree, on the other hand, will have to be replaced every year. The cost of a real tree depends on where you live and where you purchase it. Since we live in a place where pine trees grow freely, the cost will be much less, and the tree will last longer since it will be fresh.

If you just have to have that perfectly shaped Christmas tree, you will find it easier to use in a fake tree. Still, hunting through a tree farm or forest for the elusive perfect natural tree is a lot of fun for many people, and if you aren’t too set on perfection you will probably find something pretty close. Just be sure the search is something you will enjoy. There are Christmas tree lots on several street corners around town. And then there are Christmas tree farms … but please make sure to ALWAYS call the farm or store BEFORE YOU GO to check on hours, prices, and inventory. Also, please confirm methods of payment accepted – some do not take credit cards.
