You're probably thinking a lot about the Christmas gifts that you're going to buy for friends and family (and we've got you covered when it comes to those!), but what are presents without a tree to put them under? Sure, you could buy a plastic tree, but there's nothing quite as magical as a real Christmas tree that you chose yourself. And Maryland is a great place to find them! There are so many Christmas tree farms here in MD -- here are just a few.
Remember, before you head to any of these farms, be sure to check out their websites or give them a call to see if they're open or what kind of stock they have. As of the time this blog is published, all of these farms are still open for the season and have stock!
Blue Heron Tree Farm, Centreville
Douglas and white pines are here for the picking! You can borrow the saws and wagons you need to get those beauties out of the ground and to your car. This location is open on the weekends, making it a perfect family or date activity.
Naughty Pine Nursery, Dickerson
This farm near the Potomac River is perfect for anyone who wants to choose a blue spruce or Douglas fir. You can even grab some perfectly split firewood while you're there! Pick up Christmas trees until December 19.
