I remember growing up it was always a family adventure picking your own tree for Christmas. When I lived in larger cities the option to cut your own tree wasn't very practical...so pre-cut trees became the norm but it was still exciting to get the tree up as soon as the after meal nap was out of the way. Here in Maine we have lots of picturesque tree farms you can visit this weekend and beyond. Another cool added bonus, many tree farm owners offer family activities, anything from pictures with Santa to pony rides, to FREE hot cocoa. So if you and the fam want to plan a special day around choosing the perfect tree CLICK HERE for a list of local cut your own tree farms with hours and activities from the Maine Christmas Tree Association.
