Local tree farm lets people cut down their own Christmas tree

Sunday’s weather didn’t stop people from having holiday fun outside.

Pederson Christmas Tree Farm is open for its 26th year of business.

People walk through the farm to find their perfect tree, and they can cut it down themselves.

The trees have to be cared for year-round.

They start planting trees in April.

It takes 6 to 8 years for the trees to grow.

With so many trees, the selection is endless.

“Some people like them a little bit wider. Some people like want them skinny with not many branches. It depends, but luckily we have a lot of trees out here. So people can find the perfect on for them,” tree farmer, Adam Pederson, said.

The tree farm is open 12pm to 4pm Wednesday through Friday, and 9am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday.
