This year, when you start getting your holiday decorations out for the upcoming season, consider getting your tree from a local Louisiana Christmas Tree Farm. Many tree farms give you the option to “Choose and Cut” where you choose and either cut the tree yourself or have the farm cut it down for you. Farms may also have pre-cut trees, garland, wreaths, and more.
Why You Should Buy a Louisiana Tree
There are so many great reasons to support a local tree farm! Some include:
- Promoting Louisiana agriculture
- Creating valuable family memories
- Making a good choice for the environment (trees provide cleaner air, shelter for wildlife, and are biodegradable)
Before You Visit
Many farms start the week before or week after Thanksgiving and sell trees until they run out. Some farms may run out of trees quickly, depending on the amount they’re able to harvest. Before you visit, call to make sure the farm is open, confirm their hours, and ask about tree availability.

Make Sure Your Home is Tree-Proof
When you do put your Christmas tree up, remember to pay attention to fire safety rules. You should also make sure you have proper home insurance to protect your assets in the event of a fire.
