VIDEO: Time to Trim Up The Tree

AMORY, Miss. (WCBI) – It’s a timeless tradition that starts the Christmas season for many families, cutting down the family Christmas tree.

With Thanksgiving marked off the calendar, people form around the area are making their way to Christmas tree farms to give their living room a little more of a seasonal look.

“For the next two weeks, we’ll be kind of to our peak,” said Worthey Tree Farm Owner, Lowell Worthey.

Worthey Christmas Tree Farm in Amory is ready for the flow of business.

Planting trees since 2007, the farm serves families far beyond the Monroe County community.

“Even Tupelo, Saltillo, Columbus, a lot of people come around from other places, as well,” continued Worthey. “It’s good, clean fun, people coming out and having fun. You’re making memories with us out here and go home with a Christmas tree.”

Workers and customers value the entire experience of finding that perfect tree to go into your home.

“I think it’s just more Christmasy, and they feel more excited about it,” said Sulligent, AL resident, Cindy Hughes.

“It’s fun for the fellowship, family coming out and walking around the field and picking them out. It’s also good for the family,” added her husband, Frank Hughes.

“They can take their time; they don’t have to be in a rush. They can just really enjoy themselves, so we try to have that to where they can come out and just have fun, be with their kids, and just spend the day together,” said Worthey.

It’s a tough business, but workers at Worthey Farms enjoy giving residents the option to choose real over artificial.

“There’s a lot that you can’t get in a box,” said Worthey. “It’s not all about the tree as to getting the tree, bringing it home, decorating it, the smell.”

Tree farms across the area will be cutting trees up until a few days before Christmas.
