APEX, N.C. -- Christmas is over a month away, but Christmas tree farmers are busy getting their fields ready to open for the season.
Jordan Lake Christmas Tree Farm in Apex will open a week before Thanksgiving this year.
During that time, people can tag their trees and pick them up at a later date. The farm's owner says the earlier people tag their trees, the better selection they will have.
“You need to know where you're going to put the tree, how high your ceilings are so that your tree can fit once you get it in the stand,” said Byron May, owner of Jordan Lake Christmas Tree Farm.
Because there was no drought and the state had a good amount of rain, Christmas tree farmers predict a good season for their business.
