Green Bay Area Christmas Tree Farm Round-Up

It may not feel like it right now (with the lack of snow), but within a few weeks many of us will venture out to find the perfect Christmas tree.  This is one of my favorite family traditions that I have carried on with my own family.  When we lived in Madison we had our 'go-to' tree farm and since moving to Green Bay we are back to square one in our tree farm search.  If you are like me or just need a change of Christmas-tree-pace, then you are in luck!  Below you will find a list of local tree farms -- some are just a short jot out of the city and some will allow for a slightly more scenic drive.  Although much of the information regarding the various farms is provided below, please consider contacting the farm directly to check hours and availability prior to going.  Happy tree hunting!
