Christmas Trees, Wreaths & Boxwoods
Farmers in Yancey and Mitchell Counties grow and ship Christmas trees and boxwood shrubs all over the Eastern U.S. The beautiful evergreen Fraser fir is native to Western North Carolina and the number one selling Christmas tree. Local farms will cut the tree for you, or they’ll let you choose and cut your own.
