Make this holiday season merry and bright by purchasing and decorating a live evergreen tree from a local Christmas tree farm.

With the Thanksgiving holiday officially behind us, we look towards the cheerful celebration of Christmas. Deck the halls with garlands, picturesque wreaths and, of course, a Christmas tree. Nothing makes a home shine brighter during the holiday season than a real, live Christmas tree. With its fresh pine scent, prickly branches adorned with ornaments and brilliant lights, it emphasizes the magic of the holiday season.  

Delaware has many local farms that sell live Christmas trees, even some that offer a cut-your-own option. Whether you are looking for the largest in the batch or a sweet mini tree perfect for a child’s bedroom, these Delaware tree farms will have it.  

Remember to bring cash or a check with you, since many farms don’t accept credit or debit.
