Christmas Tree Farm Opens For Holiday Season

Christmas Tree Farm Opens For Holiday Season

Families make it a tradition to go the day after Thanksgiving.
GREEN VALLEY - For a lot of people, the end of Thanksgiving marks the time to dive into Christmas, and that means a Christmas tree.

"Our traditional opening day is the day after thanksgiving," said Susan Frank, whose family owns Talbott's Christmas Tree Farm.

The farm has been in Green Walley since 1947 and offers 40 acres with thousands of trees to choose from. The Alley family came out Friday looking for two.

"It's the process of finding the tree it's the tractor ride out here it's the discussion between the kids about what tree to get because you'll find one and someone else will find another," said Shane Alley.

Shane alley says it's a family tradition to pick out a tree together. This year that includes his wife, two daughters, one of the daughter’s fiancé, an uncle and one niece.

Alley says a real tree beats out a fake one any day.

'It smells good the real trees smell better."

More than that though, he says it's time set aside to be a family. The Alley’s took family pictures as they embarked on their search, capturing moments to greet the season with holiday cheer.

Eventually they found two that looked just right and sawed them off.

"I think that makes it worth it to find a tree, work to cut it down," Alley said.

And that, he said, kicks off the countdown to Christmas.
