Ready, or not, the holidays are here, which means it’s time to start thinking about decorating for Christmas — and we all know the most important decoration of them all is typically the centerpiece of the home, the Christmas tree. Whether you like a full and fluffy tree, one that reaches the ceiling, or go for more of the Charlie Brown look, there’s no absolutely no shortage of places to go around town to purchase the perfect tree this year.
Here are a few of our favorite locations that sell fantastic trees as well as a few options that give back to the community when you make a purchase. Did we miss your favorite? Please share in the comments below.
