Whether it’s a Douglas Fir or Monterey Pine, natural green or flocked, the Christmas tree is the iconic symbol of the holiday season. While some tree shoppers choose artificial trees made to look like the traditional evergreen conifers, others seek pre-cut trees hauled in from miles away and propped in the corner of an empty parking lot. For those Christmas tree purists in Orange County who want to hand-pick the tree with the perfect spread of branches and ideal scent of pine, there are several Christmas tree farms within driving distance that bring the nostalgia of childhood back to the holiday season.
You could get a fresh-cut Christmas tree delivered to your door, but the experience of cutting down your own sounds way more fun. Here are some places to do just that.
All it takes is a little drive to one of the Christmas tree farms listed below and you’ll start off a Christmas season you won’t soon forget.
