We’ve all watched Clark Griswold cut down his own mammoth tree, deep in the frozen forrest. Did you know you can have a similar family experience right here in Louisiana, minus the six feet of snow?
Louisiana farmers grow thousands of Christmas trees, some only a few hours away from the bayou region. The The Southern Christmas Tree Association provides a list of Louisiana Christmas Tree farms where you can pick out and cut down your own tree.
The LSU Ag Center offers a few “know before you go” tips when it comes to cutting down your own family tree. Always call before you go. Many farms and lots can sell out of trees early in the season. You might want to bring cash as well.
