The holidays in my home always presented a problematic decision. Where do we buy the best Christmas Tree? Dad wanted the fake Christmas Tree… of course. Mom wanted to take the family to a Christmas Tree farm and make it an event. Guess who always won? Here are 9 (8, really… the first one is an event) Christmas Tree Farms in Pittsburgh (or around Pittsburgh, if you like) where you can buy a real tree this year. You can order it ahead of time, or you can cut your own Christmas Tree and strap it to the top of your car, like a real Pittsburgher!
