Top 10 Places to Get Your Christmas Tree in Arizona

Maddie Waldman December 3, 2015

The real versus artificial Christmas tree debate resurfaces at this time of the year, every year. While an artificial tree might be a more practical choice, nothing screams “Christmas!” like a real tree. Many of you might have already got your permits to cut down your own Christmas tree this year but for those who haven’t, it might be too late to get one.
Considering the fact that here in Arizona, it’s mandatory to have a permit to cut down a tree in our national forests, your next option is to buy your tree directly from a local grower or a Christmas tree farm.
We’ve put together a list of places where you can pick a real Christmas tree in Arizona. Call the farm or store before you go and confirm their supply to avoid any last minute disappointment.
