Christmas Trees Flourish Thanks To Increased Rain

Updated: Tuesday, November 19 2013, 11:53 AM CST

Mother Nature has been kind on the Christmas tree crop this year. The day after Thanksgiving, the owners at Elgin Christmas Tree Farm will have Christmas Trees ready for you to cut down and they say this year, their crop is the best they have seen in more than five years.


Timely rain over the last two years has helped the Christmas tree crop recover from devastating drought effects. They're not only fuller, but they're also taller this year ranging from 6 -11 ft.


You can grab a saw and cut Virginia Pines down yourself or purchase a precut tree. Owner, Marc Nash says he has some of the freshest precut trees around because they keep them in the shade and in water.


The Elgin Christmas Tree Farm also has the Christmas Cottage on site for you to buy tree skirts or ornaments and they have animals on site for the kids to pet. Visiting the farm is the perfect way to get in the holiday spirit.


The farm is open for business Thursday and Friday 10:00am–8:30pm, Saturday 10:00am-5:30 pm, Sunday they offer church on site at 11:00am and the farm is open for business Noon-5:30pm.
