Check out these Belmont County cut-your-own farms
Updated: Jan 20
Christmas trees are a central part of Christmas celebrations around the world. Families gather around them to exchange gifts. Cities and villages put them up in squares and town halls and have lighting ceremonies. You'll find them in nearly every hotel, restaurant and shopping mall. The first use of the Christmas tree as it is known today dates back to the 1500s. The Christmas tree is such an iconic and symbolic part of the holiday that there are numerous songs dedicated to it. No matter how or when you decorate your tree, there's nothing quite like the site, smell and memory-making tradition of choosing and cutting (or digging to plant later) your very own Christmas tree. These three Belmont County tree farms (listed on the Ohio Christmas Tree Assoc.
website http://ohiochristmastree.org/christmas-tree-farm-finder) will help you develop or continue a treasured holiday tradition.
