Christmas tree season begins

ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) -- It's the time of year when families head out to get their Christmas trees, but before getting a tree, make sure it will last throughout the entire season.

Laura Wolfe, owner of Evergreen Tree Farm in Rockingham County, says this is her and her husband's first tree season.

Wolfe suggests when people purchase a tree, they should put it into water right away. If you can't get it into water within the first eight hours, cut the stump again and then place it into water.

The tree should get at least two quarts of water each day.

Wolfe says she is looking forward to the Christmas tree season.

"This is our first sell season,"she said, "but it's just been a dream come true for us to be able to buy the family farm and the Christmas tree farm to be able to combine it into Every Soul Acres."

Christmas trees go on sale at Evergreen Tree Farm on Friday.

Trees will be for sale on Thursdays from 1 p.m., until dark and Friday-Sunday from 10 a.m. until dark.
