Here are some local places to find the perfect Christmas tree this holiday season! For more information check out the original article posted by WestChester.Patch.com by clicking here.

  • Wiggins Christmas TreesA family operation since 1972, Wiggins Christmas Trees are grown locally in Chester County. They supply both pre-chopped, at a lot located at 1301 West Chester Pike, and cut-your-own trees. Though cutting down your own tree is a bit more expensive — $45 versus as little as $19.95 for a pre-cut tree — it may provide a memorable family experience. The cut-your-own lot is located at 1257 Westtown Thronton Rd.
  • Tricolor Tree FarmTricolor Tree Farm is located just outside West Chester — 1480 Hall Rd. — and offers cut-your-own Christmas trees. Not only can you cut down your own tree, but there’s hot chocolate, provided saws and weekend hayrides. The farm is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. until dark.
  • Buck Run Evergreen FarmsBuck Run Evergreen Farms, 1479 Hall Rd., has a lot where you can buy your own trees. It’s open on weekends until Dec. 23.

There are almost a million people in the Delaware Valley who face hunger every day. Whether it be working families hit hard by the recession or women and children, seniors trying to make ends meet. The one thing they have in common is being part of a food system that desperately needs additional support. Within the Delaware Valley, Philabundance has experienced 26 percent more people coming to us for food compared to last year. Philabundance was created in 1984 with the simple belief that no man, woman or child should go hungry.
