Cut Your Own Christmas Tree
According to Farm PGC, the first three below are great places in Prince George’s County to cut your own Christmas Tree!
Linden Hill Christmas Tree Farm in Upper Marlboro includes cut-your-own Christmas Trees (or they will cut). Varieties include Douglas Fir, Norway and Blue Spruce, White Pine
Feezers Farm in Marriottsville – Neighbor Note: “If you want a lovely organic tree, grown without pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers, and you want to support family-owned and operated small business, then go to Feezers Farm…(not far from Ellicot City). We used the drive to tell our six year old about stewardship, about organic farming (vs conventional), and about why we support small and local businesses. We walked through the farm and picked out our tree together, cut it ourselves and used a nifty ‘tree cart’ to bring it back to where the family helped us prep the tree and tie it on the roof of our car. It’s a great way to start off the season.”
