“Choose-and-cut Christmas tree farms offer beautiful trees at reasonable prices, and, because there are 32 farms listed, you are sure to find one within driving distance,” said Assistant State Forester Bob Radspinner.

West Virginia Forestry officials are making the search for the perfect Christmas tree easy. The Division of Forestry has updated its 2014 list of choose-and-cut Christmas tree farms. The information, which includes a searchable database, map, contact information and descriptions of products and services for 32 farms, is available at http://www.wvcommerce.org/directory/christmastreefarms.
Assistant State Forester Bob Radspinner says selecting a West Virginia-grown Christmas tree is beneficial in many ways.
“Choose-and-cut Christmas tree farms offer beautiful trees at reasonable prices, and, because there are 32 farms listed, you are sure to find one within driving distance,” Radspinner said.
Choose-and-cut Christmas tree farms are locally owned, and purchasing a tree close to home ensures a fresher product than buying one brought in from another area. Plus, a daytrip to a Christmas tree farm can be a great family adventure not soon forgotten.
Once people find their perfect real tree, Forestry officials encourage them to post a picture of the tree to the agency’s Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/wvforestry), or tweet it to @wvforestry using #wvrealtree.
Although most choose-and-cut Christmas tree farms are open from the day after Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve, hours and services vary, so Radspinner suggests calling ahead for details. To find a choose-and-cut Christmas tree farm, visit http://www.wvcommerce.org/directory/christmastreefarms.
