Believe it or not, Christmas is almost here which means it’s almost time to pick out the perfect tree to transform your home into a festive Christmas wonderland. Sure, a fake tree will get the job done, but there is something special about cutting down your very own tree. Luckily, there are tons of Christmas tree farms in BC where you can grab that picture-perfect holiday staple.

Stringing up lights and tinsel across your tree is a magical feeling that’s sure to get you in the spirit. But, honestly, the real fun comes from wandering acres of beautiful farmland in search of the best tree.

Whether you’re looking for something grand or prefer the Charlie Brown type, there’s a tree out there with your name on it.

Most Christmas farms even offer hot snacks, cozy bonfires, hayrides, and free warm drinks to make the experience even more enchanting.

You won’t want to forget your camera either as the forests can be breathtaking. A lot of these farms really go all out with the decorations and often have large props for you to pose with.

This year, consider a real tree to make this Christmas the most charming one yet.
