As Christmas approaches, it's time to celebrate one of the season's traditions: the hunt for the perfect tree. It could be Douglas fir, white pine or blue spruce. Once you've found, cut and hauled home the one you want, the decorating can commence.

Here's a roundup of some area farms where you can cut your own Christmas tree. Call ahead to check whether these farms take both cash and credit or just cash.
