Just a friendly reminder that there is only approximately a month and half left until Christmas. And while it is encouraged that you embrace November and the holidays it presents: Thanksgiving and Veterans Day, it is also never too early to think about where you are purchasing your live Christmas tree this year. A live Christmas tree can easily last a month in your home if it is well cared for and an outing to a local tree farm is the perfect family excursion or romantic date to break the monotony of late fall. Many tree farms offer refreshments, entertainment, and children’s activities on top of hunting for the perfect Christmas tree. The Carroll County, Maryland Christmas Tree and Holiday Greens guide is now available at your local library, visitor center, and at the Carroll County Government Offices. Or you can visit: http://carrollgrown.org/christmas-tree-farms/ to find a tree farm near you. Happy tree hunting!
