Where Will You Buy Your Christmas Tree?

Share with readers your favorite spot to pick up your Christmas tree.

The Thanksgiving turkey has been digested, and it's officially the Christmas season. Aside from crazy Black Friday deals and all of the gifts people are rushing to buy, getting a tree is another big tradition for many families.

Where do you pick up your tree? Do you have a family tradition of driving up to Apple Hill? Do you opt for the trees at for under $10? Do you have a favorite Roseville tree lot you always head to?

Tell us where you like to get your tree and why. What do you think some of the Christmas tree hotspots are in Roseville?

Green Acres Nursery has a great selection of fresh smelling Christmas trees. Why I support buying a tree at Green Acres Nursery is not only are they fresh they also are very patriotic. They give a FREE Christmas tree to those who have an immediate family member who's deployed.

We used to go up to Apple Hill but with the recession and my husband being out of work for so long - we can no longer afford the gas and the $50 to $75 for a small tree. We miss the holiday tradition, but we want to keep the tradition of having a tree. Last year we went to the new Wise Buys in Citrus Heights for our tree. We got a bigger tree than we had hoped for, it was fresh, smelled wonderful and our kids were able to pick it out from a really great selection of trees. If it weren't for Wise Buys we wouldn't have been able to afford a tree. I know the surrounding tree lots resorted to some dirty dealing to prevent them from selling trees the first year they offered them - shame on you! There is a wide market for trees and not everyone can afford a tree lot tree. Our family is grateful for Wise Buys and the opportunities they provide for an impoverished family to still celebrate the holidays even when things aren't going well financially. They have blessed our family last year and we hope they will bless many more this year.

One year it was the 9.98 store and the tree was filled with spiders! Last year was Walmart and the tree was very dry. I will most likely go back to Home Depot. They had a good tree one year for around 20.00, and they gave it a fresh cut, wrapped, and loaded it. The Apple Hill idea sounds wonderful. I have never cut down a fresh tree at a farm. Will someone post about how much this type of tree from a farm in Apple Hill is, and where to go? Thanks!

If we buy a tree from town, it's usually Home Depot, because they tend to have a decent selection with reasonable prices. When we want to cut a tree, we go to Little Bear Creek Tree Farm in Alta, not too far from Colfax. They have a beautiful location with a trout pond, creek, a fire pit where you can roast marshmallows, and a little store complete with hot drinks and baked goods. Their restored 1950's Jeeps will take you up to the top of the mountain where you can roam for hours looking for that perfect tree, hike their trails, or have a picnic. Trees are $7-$8 per foot, depending on the variety. It's a great old fashioned experience.

Thanks for all of the suggestions! There were some other suggestions on our Facebook page too here: https://www.facebook.com/RosevilleCAPatch. Deborah - thank you for the info about Green Acres. I had no idea. I think it's great that they do that.

The reviews for Robert's Christmas Tree Farm on Apple Hill were really good. I haven't been there, but this is where I am considering going. They sound like they have the best bang for the buck. Here's what I found...http://www.yelp.com/biz/roberts-christmas-tree-farm-pollock-pines
