As the festive season trickles in and the city begins to glow up with mesmerizing holiday lights and displays, we start to turn our attention to all the seasonal traditions we love like decorating a real Christmas tree. There’s nothing quite like the scent of a fresh pine tree to evoke that holiday spirit—even if you do spend all of January picking up the pine needles. To add to that, the act of choosing, cutting, and carrying your tree is an experience of its own plus it’s a way of supporting local farms.
Here are the best places around L.A. to get a real Christmas tree.
