Some people just can't see the tree farm for the trees.
Local tree farmers have heard all the reasons for skipping a holiday visit to a tree farm. "We can't have a real tree in the house--we're allergic." "The spot where we like to put our tree is hard to clean up after the holidays, so artificial is easier." "We only like one variety of tree." "It's our tradition to buy our tree from an organization we support."
Finding a perfect tree is only one of many good reasons to experience a holiday adventure at a local Christmas tree farm. Tennessee's tree farms also offer lush, natural wreaths and garland for a home's exterior. That can be the perfect solution for those who can't have a real tree inside but still want to enjoy the terrific aroma of real greenery straight from the great outdoors.
Wildwood Christmas Tree Farm located at 286 La Paloma Road off Auburntown Road features a large selection of live Christmas trees and wreaths plus hay rides, a gift shop, kids craft room, tree house play area and much more. Enjoy free hot chocolate and coffee andfresh popcorn. Contact 615-464-2472 for information or visit www.wildwoodchristmastreefarm.com
However, a Christmas tree farm's real specialty is creating holiday memories. Depending on the farm, visitors can take wagon rides, sip hot chocolate and cider, make wreaths, take a decorating class, enjoy a petting zoo, explore a gift shop, and even visit with Santa. Every tree farm offers fresh air, a farm setting and the chance to participate in a traditional American holiday experience.
