Adams County Christmas Tree Farms Offer Homegrown Holiday Traditions
Searching, finding, and cutting the perfect Christmas tree–it’s a holiday tradition that flourishes on Adams County Christmas tree farms. “A lot of families come year after year, going on 30 years, bringing their children and then grandchildren,” says Michael Breighner, owner of The Gettysburg (Breighner) Tree Farm. “They have the Christmas spirit, enjoying the view, smiles on their faces–those are the kinds of things that make the Christmas tree experience worthwhile.”

The infinite, subtle variations between Christmas tree varieties is astounding. Enjoy the photos below that demonstrate why many evergreens are considered “blue” or “silver” needled. All of the photos were taken at Gettysburg (Breighner) Tree Farm in September 2014. It was challenging, waiting for a slightly overcast day, so that the lighting would appear natural for the Nov/Dec issue!
Best wishes for a Merry Christmas with family and friends close by your very own Christmas tree!
