Where To Get a Real Christmas Tree Around Kalamazoo

by Robin B


Kick off the holiday season with a trip to a nearby Christmas tree farm where you can chop ‘til you drop! We’ve done some research to find the best spots in town for a real Christmas tree.

This list has been updated for the 2015 and you’ll want to note several locations have closed from last year, including the popular Mott Farms in Vicksburg – read the article here.

Make sure to check with each individual location to verify if the trees are pre-cut or u-select.

Have fun!
