One of the best things about the holiday season is not only the smells of pumpkin pies, yeast rolls and roasting turkeys coming from the kitchen, but also that soothing fresh scent of the great outdoors that wafts through the house from a live Christmas tree. Arkansas Christmas tree farms let you choose and cut your own tree or provide precut Christmas trees. Some also offer living Christmas trees that can be planted outside after the presents beneath have all been unwrapped.

Picking out your own Christmas tree can be a fun family tradition and many farms also offer fresh-cut greenery, wreaths, and seasonal fun such as hayrides! Two popular varieties are the Virginia Pine, known for its strong fragrance and stable branches, and the Leland Cypress, which is easy on those with allergies. Before you go, be sure to call or check the website or Facebook page for up-to-date hours and information.
