Choose and Cut Christmas Tree Farms Ashe County NC

The Ashe County Christmas Tree Association is an association of family farmers in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains that specialize in growing the King of Christmas Trees… the Magnificent Fraser Fir.     

 The Fraser Fir is highly prized all around the country because of its aroma, shape, dark green color, excellent needle retention and strong branches capable of carrying heavy ornaments.

 Whenever you feel those cool mornings and evenings you know fall is not far away.  In Ashe County Christmas tree growers are gearing up for the yuletide industry. The NC Choose and Cut season begins around the 20th of November and runs right up to the 24th of December at some of the farms.
