The Ashe County Christmas Tree Association is an association of family farmers in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains that specialize in growing the King of Christmas Trees... the Majestic Fraser Fir.
The Fraser Fir is highly prized all around the country because of its aroma, shape, dark green color, excellent needle retention and strong branches capable of carrying heavy ornaments.
Association members also grow a wide variety of other Christmas tree species, nursery stock, and B&B stock; along with making and shipping wreaths and garland. Other Association members operate Choose & Cut farms that families from all over the South visit to get their yearly Christmas tree.
