Christmas tree lots are starting to pop up all over the Charlottesville area. A popular spot to buy a real fir tree, is at the Fashion Square Mall parking lot.
The owner says he opens for business Saturday, November 25th. He has a variety of pine trees, as well as wreaths to decorate your home.
The tip to getting the best tree, is to make sure it's fresh, so it lasts longer. One way is to bend a branch, if it's dry and brittle, that means the tree is old.
Also, make sure you buy your tree early. They usually sell out the day before Christmas Eve.
