It’s that time of year when Christmas trees are tied tightly on top of cars and you can’t go a few miles without seeing Christmas tree stands alongside the road. If that doesn’t get you into the holiday spirit, maybe the scent of a freshly cut fir tree does; it must be one of the greatest smells on earth! If you’re interested in cutting down your own tree [what a neat family tradition!], we’ve compiled a list of some great places to do so in Loudoun County!
Located in Bluemont, Virginia, Snicker’s Gap Christmas Tree Farm is one of the largest and oldest Christmas Tree Farms in Loudoun. The Wolff family has been growing beautiful fir and spruce trees for more than 37 years. Not only do they provide a saw, plenty of rope and assistance, but they also offer complimentary hot cider- perfect for a chilly day of tree searching! Wagon rides are also available for you and your tree. For ease of transportation, assistants will shake and bail your tree and firmly tie it to your vehicle. While visiting, grab a snack at Finn’s Snack Shack which offers hot chocolate, candy, soft drinks, hot dogs and pretzels. Bring the entire family and your four-legged friends!
