Need a Real Christmas Tree in Northern Colorado? 5 Best Local Farms
The Christmas season is here in Colorado. Many of us are buying presents, figuring out travel plans, and trying to perfect cookie recipes. Many of us are looking to buy a Christmas tree. Looking for a Christmas tree can be an overwhelming experience.
When I purchased real Christmas trees I used to rely on word-of-mouth. I would ask friends and family where the best place to buy them is.
That was until I took my brother's recommendation and bought the worst Christmas tree ever. We don't want you to have that same experience. Here are the best Christmas tree farms that Northern Colorado has to offer.

Real Vs. Artificial Christmas Trees
We recently discovered that most Coloradans prefer an artificial Christmas tree. I get it. The number of people going out in Fort Collins, Greeley, Loveland, and Northern Colorado getting a real tree is getting smaller each year.
I have fond memories of going to a tree farm, grabbing the saw, and cutting down the perfect Christmas tree every year.
I also remember one year I cut the tree trunk way too short and it took my family 2 hours to figure out how to stand it up.
Those are cherished memories that an artificial tree can not provide.
Right now my artificial tree is standing up in my living room. I like it a lot, but it just isn't the same. There is something special about having an authentic tree. No matter how realistic an artificial tree looks, it just doesn't get me in the holiday spirit like a real tree does.
