Tons of Tiny Tannenbaums

While visiting Ashe County, N.C., my family and I were amazed by the number of Christmas tree farms cascading along the mountainside. Later, we learned that Ashe County is one of the nation’s top producers of Christmas Trees, particularly the Fraser Fur.


We couldn’t help loving these tiny tannenbaums!





From start to finish, Denise is Run DMT, a Tampa Bay marathon mom on the run trying to maintain an easy pace through it all between races and raising three beautiful, brilliant children (ages 13, 9, 4). In 2007, I discovered a passion for running and in February 2015, I completed my tenth marathon, however, I continue to train for a variety of races and triathlons. In my spare time, I founded Tampa Bay Bloggers, a hyperlocal blogging network.

    When I first glanced at the pic it looked familiar. I grew up on a Christmas tree farm (from Indiana though) I remember when my dad planted a field like this and now it is huge because he stopped selling them 10 or more years ago. I miss that business..

    beautiful pictures. love all that snow. wish we would get some to play with. fingers crossed. we used to travel to NC to get our tree, but for the last two seasons we visited a lot that has trees from a farm up in NC. it’s a lot easier to trekking up to NC, but we might have to make a trip up to play in some snow. happy WW and take care.

    What a great thing to see in person. My son always asks where the trees come from but doesn’t believe a farm. So this year we planted some evergreen seeds to grow one and let him see it grow.
