One more reason to visit Lenoir is to get your family’s tree from an area Christmas tree farm.
It should come as no surprise that North Carolina Christmas trees are highly coveted. In fact, in 2018, it was a Mountain Top Fraser Fir from Newland, North Carolina that became the official White House Christmas Tree. Some families even plan to visit Lenoir & the NC Foothills with the goal of visiting a Christmas tree farm for a tree to take back to their home or to place a wholesale order to sell at their store, church, or for another fundraising opportunity.
There are more than 50 Christmas tree farms in the Lenoir, North Carolina area to choose from, with pretty much all of them offering the prized Fraser Fir in a variety of sizes. Some also have white pine, Canaan firs, Norway spruce, and other trees to choose from, as well as wreaths, garlands, centerpieces, and more. Some Christmas tree farms are also a great place to visit for activities, such as hay rides, gift shops, and more. One example is RRR Laurel Knob Tree Farm in Boone.
If you like the idea of cutting your own Christmas tree, you’ll also find several Christmas tree farms that offer this, including Appalachian Evergreens and Circle C Tree Farms, both located in Boone, North Carolina.

Whether you are a local or coming to the area to secure your family’s Christmas tree, you’ll find plenty of other things to see and do that make this area memorable!
