Choose & Cut Christmas Trees

It's a rich American tradition as old and atmospheric as an 1800s Currier & Ives lithograph. And it happens in the High Country when Thanksgiving rolls around!

There's no more memorable Holiday experience for the entire family than choosing your own Christmas tree from a Boone Area tree farm. Plan ahead-it's never too early to make your lodging reservations for a Choose & Cut Christmas Tree Weekend in the High Country!

If you didn't make it up last year, plan your 2014 pre-Christmas tree expedition-check out the 2013 brochure, Boone & Blowing Rock Area Christmas Tree Farms.

Best of all, you don't have to live in The White House to have a perfect Christmas tree.

Fraser fir trees from the High Country region have been selected for The White House eleven times, three times in the last six years. Fraser fir is the nation's most prized Christmas tree, sought for its beauty, long-lasting needle retention, and aroma. It's native only to the High Country of northwestern North Carolina and adjacent summits.

High Country tree farmers are proud to ship their perfectly proportioned trees all over the world-but the Choose & Cut tradition of old is still alive and well-and close to home-in the Boone area.

You're invited onto growers' farms to choose among the freshest trees from tiny to towering. You'll also find beautiful wreaths, roping, and boughs. Some farms offer Christmas-themed crafts and gifts, hot cocoa or cider, cookies, hayrides, farm animals to pet, antique machinery to admire, and spectacular views.



Taking home a tree is just the beginning. There's no better way to prepare for Holiday gift giving than to shop in the Boone Area for fine art or hand-crafted items. Gifts from Boone area stores and specialty shops are as distinctively local as our trees. Check out our Boone Area Buyer's Guide!

For skiers, a pre-Christmas trip to the South's biggest cluster of ski resorts is the perfect way to have the slopes to yourself and warm up for the season. Speaking of warming up, High Country spas are ready when your tree is on the car! Add seasonal eventsatmospheric lodging, and an early winter visit to the Boone Area is a magical way to welcome the Holidays.
