There's nothing more satisfying than getting bundled up and trekking out into the woods in search of the perfect Christmas tree. But, unfortunately, back in the dark ages when I was a kid, there weren't any Xmas tree farms that handed you saw and told you where to go and then tied them to the roof of your car.

If you refuse to go out and purchase one of those fancy-ass artificial trees at Walmart in favor of the real thing, there are plenty of Christmas tree farms to choose from.

Before you go, here are some words of wisdom. First, expect supplies to be minimal in 2021, so get your tree soon after Thanksgiving if possible. Many may be sold out by December 7th. My recommendation would be to call the farm before you drive over. Let's go find a Christmas tree!
