Christmas tree farms open across the area

PRINCETON, W. Va (WVVA)-- Christmas tree farms are opening across the area.

We stopped by the Mountain Vista Christmas Tree Farm in Princeton, which officially began the season Friday.

They have thousands of trees to choose from this winter.

The owners provide saws and all the other tools you'll need to chop down your favorite fir or pine.

They say choosing the right tree and actually cutting it down as a family brings people together to welcome Christmas.

"I think it's just cool because it brings the family together," said Thomas Lusk, one of the owners. "It brings us together when we're setting up the business and everything."

He says many families enjoy the tradition each year.

"They all come up, they all have a part in choosing the tree and cutting it down. So it's just a very fun time for the whole family," he said.

The Mountain Vista Tree Farm is open on weekdays from 1 pm until it gets dark around 5:30. Weekends, they're open from 9 am to dark.

They end their season December twenty-third.
