Though Wisconsin is known for its dairy, the state ranks No. 5 in the nation for Christmas tree production. There are 1,387 Christmas tree farms in the state, harvesting about 1.8 million trees annually.

Better for the environment than a plastic tree, go out and find one locally:

Enchanted Valley Acres, 5047 Enchanted Valley Rd., Cross Plains
The farm has all the warm cheer one might expect including hot cocoa, regular Santa visits, and plenty of trees.

Hann’s Christmas Farm, 848 Tipperary Rd., Oregon
With free admission, the business promises that you’ll leave with “Memories of an Old Fashioned Christmas.”

Ottman Family Christmas Trees, 759 Primrose Center Rd., Belleville
The family-owned business is celebrating over 50 years of Christmas tree farming.

Tree City, 5501 Schroeder Rd., Madison
For those not wanting to go far afield, Tree City, near the Beltline, has been serving Madison residents Christmas trees since 1977.
