Edgewater Tree Barn?s trees travel from both local farms and the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to decorate living rooms for the holiday season. On sturdy branches, the needles of the fraser and douglas firs twinkle magically under the rays of colorful Christmas tree lights. The trees range in height from 5 to 13 feet, allowing them to fit into tight corners or tower majestically in a stately living room or two-story cave. The lot also supplies wreaths, roping, and other seasonal decorating tools.
In addition to populating homes with seasonal greenery, the holiday helpers behind Edgewater Tree Barn also embody the spirit of the season through their ongoing charitable work. This year, they're collecting supplies for a local animal shelter and the pets in its care.
