Christmas Tree Farms Where to get trees in Calvert County

I don't know about your family but my family always likes to decorate for Christmas the weekend after Thanksgiving. It's hard not to get into the holiday spirit with all the local Christmas Lighting Celebrations going on. For a lot of families that means loading up and looking for the perfect Christmas tree.

Growing up it meant hours trying to get the three of us to agree on a tree that would fit in the house. My brother always wanted to get the largest tree, my sister wanted it to be perfect from every side, and I loved the Charlie Brown looking trees. So you can tell finding a tree was never easy and often we would come home with more than one just to get the process going.

Buying a real Christmas tree is big business with over 25 Million trees sold last year according the National Christmas Tree Association. You have a lot of choices when looking for that tree. You can head to a Christmas tree lot or head to a farm where you can chop down your own tree.
