There are plenty of tree lots in the Triangle, some of which are for-profit ventures, others which are run for charity.
The latter make it possible that, when you buy your Christmas tree this year, you can also spread some holiday cheer.
The Cary Jaycees' Christmas tree lot, for instance, is now open across from Cary Elementary School. Profits will go toward local charities. The Jaycees say their trees are also the freshest you'll find in town.
"We deal with one single farmer in Ash county who cuts the trees when we want him to. So they are fresh. They were cut just a couple of days before Thanksgiving," says Jaycee Dean Farmer.
Proceeds from the Jaycee tree sales will benefit the North Carolina Jaycee Burn Center in Chapel Hill, and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
