Christmas trees

BPR News

The holiday season is in full swing, and for many, that means it’s time to find a  Christmas tree.    Here in Western North Carolina, the experience is a bit like shopping for toys in Santa’s workshop.  The region produces the majority of Christmas trees for the state and is the second biggest producer in the country. 

Wildfires and a prolonged drought appear to have spared North Carolina's Christmas tree farms this year. The state is a top producer of the holiday staple nationally.
