The 8 Best Christmas Tree Farms in South Carolina!

South Carolinians know there are some Christmas traditions that just can’t be broken, like going to a real live Christmas tree farm to find that perfect tree. Good thing there are plenty of Christmas tree farms that make it possible to carry on this family-favorite tradition. Each year hundreds of folks skip the long lines at the big box stores in favor of the thick, woodsy smell of an honest-to-goodness fir or spruce. If you’ve never had a real tree, or if you’ll never settle for a fake one, start your holidays with a trip to one of these 8 best Christmas tree farms in South Carolina. 

Friendship Valley Christmas Tree Farm, Seneca, SC

This family owned-and-operated Christmas tree farm is small and well off the beaten path, but the friendly family-focused service and high quality trees makes the trip worthwhile. You get the benefit of picking your own tree, and they’ll do all the work to cut it, shake it, net it, and help you load it. They offer a variety of live trees, as well as imported Fraser firs to give you exactly what you’re looking for.

Hollow Creek Tree Farm, Gilbert, SC

The folks here offer some of the “greenest” trees in the state. Yes, most trees are usually green, but since these trees are real, they’re far greener than any plastic tree you can buy at a store. They also feature one of the largest Christmas tree varieties around—Carolina sapphire, Murray Cypress,Thuja Green Giant, and the rare "Electra" Deodara Cedar, to name a slight few.
