Trips to Christmas tree farm still a favorite for Pine Belt families

MOSELLE, MS (WDAM) -

Christmas is just a few weeks away, which means the pumpkin decorations are being traded for snowmen and for many Pine Belt families, it also means the traditional trip to a local Christmas tree farm.

"That's the exciting part about the Christmas tree business," said Roger Smith of Smith's Christmas Trees. "You see families come out with their kids, and their kids get all excited when they come out here and they say 'Oh, the Christmas trees!' and they're just excited to see the Christmas trees."

Smith's Christmas Trees has been in business in Moselle for 33 years, and just as the business is a family tradition so are visits to the farm by other families.

The Davis family from Hattiesburg has looked for- and found- their perfect Christmas tree at Smith's for many years. The parents said it's always up to the kids which tree is taken home.

"Our tree is kind of like the best tree," said seven-year-old Riley Davis. "They have strong branches to hold lots of ornaments so they don't fall down."

Smith's has approximately 15,000 Christmas trees on its 25 acres of land. While choosing the right one might be difficult for some, Smith said it's all about the experience.

"We want to make it an enjoyable experience for them to come out to the farm," said Smith.

Smith's Christmas Trees has leyland cypress, which is the most popular this year, as well as Carolina sapphire, pines and cedars. The farm is located at 793 Sanford Road in Moselle and is open 9-5 Monday through Saturday and 1-5 Sunday afternoons.
