Christmas Trees – Tampa Bay Area

For many families throughout the Tampa area, cutting your own Christmas tree is a tradition and Christmas event that marks the true start of the holiday season. The general Tampa area has a few places that make
having this treasured experience even more special with petting zoos, farm animals, hayrides,
campfires, and more. Many of these Christmas tree farms are family-owned themselves, sharing
in these traditions with Tampa residents for decades.

Here are three places where you can cut your own Christmas Tree in the general Tampa, Florida area
this year are:
