Christmas wouldn't be the same without two things -- a tree and snow. And while it looks like we won't be having a white Christmas, you can still count on having the perfect tree.
Here's some local places to find the perfect tree -- whether you pick it up from a lot or chop it down yourself.
A family operation since 1972, Wiggins Christmas Trees are grown locally in Chester County. They supply both pre-chopped, at a lot located at 1301 West Chester Pike, and cut-your-own trees. Though cutting down your own tree is a bit more expensive -- $45 versus as little as $19.95 for a pre-cut tree -- it may provide a memorable family experience. The cut-your-own lot is located at 1257 Westtown Thronton Rd.
Tricolor Tree Farm is located just outside West Chester -- 1480 Hall Rd. -- and offers cut-your-own Christmas trees. Not only can you cut down your own tree, but there's hot chocolate, provided saws and weekend hayrides. The farm is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. until dark.
Buck Run Evergreen Farms, 1479 Hall Rd., has a lot where you can buy your own trees. It's open on weekends until Dec. 23.
Located in Coatesville, Chester County Trees offers many kinds of pine trees.
Located at 1049 Bartlett Ln. in Chester Springs, Windridge Farm is open every day of the week. It offers both pre-cut and cut-your-own trees.
Offering wreaths, tree stands, cut-your-own and pre-cut trees, Yeager's in Phoenixville is open seven days a week. Tractor rides are offered for cut-your-own trees on weekends only.
