“O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, how lovely are thy branches.”
Have you been dragging your feet this year and haven’t picked up your family tree yet? No worries at all, because Lake County has got you covered.
Christmas trees have a sort of je ne sais quoi. Every family needs something out of their respective tree, whether it is the tree’s fullness, the pine cone smell, your Christmas critters that are ecstatic for presents (and the time off of school) or perhaps just to instill or boost the holiday spirit in some of the humbug naysayers in your family unit.
Don’t be a blockhead like Charlie Brown. Whether it is a real tree, one you cut down, a natural tree you buy or artificial vegetation, grab a lovely full and festive tree from Lake County this holiday season.
Here are your top 10+ places to get a Christmas tree in Lake County.
