Where (and how) to Chop Down Your Own Christmas Tree!
Since the Ziegler Christmas Tree Farm in Elgin closed in 2015, those who love the tradition of cutting down their own Christmas Tree may wonder, where to go? Here are some ideas! Always contact the farm ahead of time to double check inventory before you drive out. It is also a good idea to confirm in advance if tree shaking, baling, bagging or netting is offered so you know what to expect. Please scroll down for a video on how to pick and cut the perfect tree from Craftsman.
