Christmas Tree Farms Near Indianapolis

Picking out the family Christmas tree is a big deal.

First, there is the age-old question of artificial tree vs. real tree. If you fancy a real tree – the next question is: to chop or not to chop.

There are many lots to choose from for those who decide to go the pre-cut route. This guide is created for those of you who are feeling adventurous and inspired by National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation‘s lovable Clark Griswold.

 

Grab your family, your gloves and your saw (or use one of theirs if you must) and head to one of these locations for a tree-chopping good time.  Before choosing your tree – don’t forget the valuable lessons we learned from Clark: 1) be sure the tree will fit in your house and 2) always check for squirrels.
