Friendship Valley Christmas Tree Farm, Seneca, SC

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 few.
