Christmas is just around the corner! Are you more of a fake or live tree family? Either way, going to look at live Christmas trees with hot cocoa in hand is a great family activity to do during the holidays. Here are some of the best places in Arizona to get live Christmas trees!
My family has been getting our Christmas tree from Home Depot for several years. We’re always happy with the trees we get here. They’re full, fresh, and last a long time. They cut off the bottom of the trunk for you before you take it away, so it can soak up water more easily and live longer. This is a great, close place to go to get your tree; your house will be filled with the scent of pine in no time!
Not only can you get your Christmas tree here, you can also participate in a bunch of different Christmas activities! You can take a hayride to feed the reindeer, make smores around a bonfire, ride their train through a World of Illumination lights show, decorate cookies, watch holiday movies, meet Mr. and Mrs. Claus, and much more.
Vertuccio Farms is located in Mesa, Arizona. Pick out your Christmas tree here, as well as enjoy their nativity, ice skating rink, light display, Christmas photo booth, photo-op with Santa, and more!
Head up to Dewey, Arizona to enjoy the cooler weather at Mortimer Farms! Who knows, you might see snow if you’re lucky. Kill two birds with one stone by getting your Christmas tree and your Christmas turkey here! And instead of picking out a pre-cut tree, you can cut down your own Christmas tree. You can write letters to Santa, enjoy farm activities, and other fun events.
Be sure to visit Mother Nature’s Farm in Gilbert to het your Christmas tree and enjoy a fun snow day while you’re at it! Sled down their snow hill and grab some holiday snacks and warm drinks. The whole family will want to join in!
