The weekend after Thanksgiving is, for many, the traditional time to put up the Christmas tree. And while some prefer artificial trees, which you can purchase almost anywhere, others want the real thing.
On Monday, we asked Troy Patch readers where they go to buy their real Christmas trees. Here are their top picks:
Telly's Greenhouse. The top choice of Troy Patch readers, Telly's received multiple recommendations. Telly's is on John R Road north of Big Beaver Road; for more information, call 248-689-8735 or visit www.tellys.com.
St. Alan's Church. "Just got a big shipment on Saturday," Lisa Rivers wrote. The church is located on Glouchester Drive, west of Coolidge Highway (between Maple and Big Beaver roads). For more information, call 248-649-5510 or visit www.stalanchurch.org.
Uncle Luke's Feed Store. "Uncle Luke's on Livernois has the best trees," Carolynn Hoenle Teufner wrote. "They survive a long time once you bring them in the house. Just have to keep them watered."
