While some people put their Christmas tree up on the day after Thanksgiving everywhere, some have already started decorating for the holidays. If you’re wondering where to buy a new Christmas tree in Sarasota because your annual artificial pine has outlived its years or if you love the act of searching for the perfect real Christmas tree, here are some of the best places in Sarasota to buy a Christmas tree.

Southwest Florida Christmas Trees

Chances are you’ve seen these tents up in past years. That’s because Southwest Florida Christmas Trees has multiple locations in Sarasota and Venice. They have lots on 4631 Bee Ridge Road and 4835 South Beneva Road in Sarasota as well as 1600 Banyan Drive in Venice. The trees they sell are grown on a Christmas tree farm in North Carolina and can grow anywhere from five to twelve feet tall. Called Fraser Firs, these are the traditional trees you may think of when you picture a Christmas tree. In shades of dark blue-greens and with a pleasant fragrance, these trees are also known for not shedding their needles as much as other trees.
