Real or Fake? In North Carolina, Real Trees Win
Aahhh. The fragrance of a fresh cut Christmas tree. It is a simple pleasure of the holiday season that no candle or room refresher can replace.
Across our state, the end of November signals the start of tree selling season – a span of a few weeks where North Carolina’s 850 Christmas tree farmers generate the revenue from an entire year’s worth of work. Many of the trees they sell have been a “work in progress” for these farmers for as many as 10 to 15 years.
NC State Extension has a long history of working with our Christmas tree industry, helping to build our state into the 2nd largest tree producing state in the nation. Join us on Homegrown to take a quick look at the North Carolina Christmas tree industry, then head out to claim your live tree today.
