Looking for a “real” Christmas tree to liven up the holiday season?
Fraser firs, many of which are grown in western North Carolina, seem to be the most popular, according to experts.
At Lowe’s Home Improvement and Home Depot in Shallotte, managers say 5-6-feet-tall Fraser firs are far and away the most sought-after type of Christmas tree. Home Depot also has Douglas firs. Many other local businesses, including several roadside stands, have live Christmas trees for sale in Brunswick County.
