You can find just about everything you need to make the holidays merry and bright at a New Hampshire or Vermont Christmas tree farm!

A farm fresh Christmas tree, grown with care and expertise at a New Hampshire or Vermont Christmas tree farm is the perfect addition to the holidays. With Christmas tree season now upon us, The NH-VT Christmas Tree Association offers the following tips for choosing the perfect tree:

First, make sure you know how tall and how wide you want your Christmas tree to be before you visit your favorite New Hampshire or Vermont Christmas tree farm. It’s often hard to picture the room you’ll place your Christmas tree when you’re in a field surrounded by beautiful firs.

Once you’re at the farm – either in the field or at the retail lot – make sure you measure your selected tree to ensure it is the size you want! (This may sound simple, but many a tree trimmer has had to lop off a chunk of tree top to make a Christmas tree fit in the living room!)

New Hampshire and Vermont Christmas tree farmers grow a variety of tree types, from the most common Balsam and Fraser firs to the more unusual Korean and Canaan firs and other species. Different types of trees have different qualities, so check with the staff at the Christmas tree farm, or visit the National Christmas Tree Association website http://www.christmastree.org before you go, to find out which tree type is best for you.

Let the whole family join in the fun of choosing the perfect tree! Many New Hampshire and Vermont Christmas tree farms offer refreshments, gift shops, and other activities on the farm, so you can create a day of family fun around bringing your tree home.
