6 Places to Cut Your Own Tree in Greater Lansing

Looking for a place to cut your own Christmas tree in the Greater Lansing area? One of my favorite childhood Holiday memories is the smell of a real tree. It’s one of the traditions that’s important to me to continue. My husband disagrees but every year (after a little grumbling 😉) we end up at a local tree farm cutting the beauty that will be ours for the month of December. Is it cold? Yes. Do the kids whine? Sometimes. But do we create awesome memories? Absolutely.
