Tis the season: three Apple Hill™ Christmas tree farms to visit

Christmas Tree

One of the best things to do in Apple Hill™ this time of year is to go Christmas tree hunting. Instead of buying your tree at a local lot, finding your Christmas tree becomes a family event. Families come from all over the Sacramento area armed with warm clothes and hot chocolate to find the perfect Christmas tree to bring home. With 16 different Christmas tree farms in the area, there are a lot of trees to choose from!
