My kids love listening to my husband’s stories of finding their Christmas tree each year on his family’s farm. While our kids are growing up in a very different environment in Kansas City, we can still make the most of our proximity to a number of Christmas Tree Farms to create our own traditions.
Here’s a comprehensive list of KC-area Christmas tree farms.
Here are some tips to pick the right tree for your home:
- Measure your space to make sure your selected tree fits – both floor to ceiling and width. Save the measurements in your phone so you don’t forget them!
- Look for symmetry and check for bald spots.
- A full tree is pretty, but get one with some space between limbs to leave room for Christmas decorations.
- This is an experience your kids will remember. Allow for plenty of time to run around and look at trees, then have a family discussion so everyone feels a part of the selection process.
- Have fun!
