Residents celebrating Christmas can turn their annual tree trip into a family adventure inside the idyllic rural landscape of northern Oakland County. As the year comes to a close and Fall makes its final, blustery turn to Winter, there may be no better place to experience the seasonal change than among the fresh pines of a Christmas Tree Farm.

- Some farms may not accept credit or debit cards; call ahead or bring cash or checks just in case
