Thomasville-- Hubbard Christmas Tree Farm has several trees like this 55 footer that the owner, Jerry Hubbard says are tall enough to be the Christmas tree for the White House, and that's something he says he'd like to try for.

But he says no matter what size tree you're looking for, you can come find and cut down you're own: a tradition he'd like to see regain its popularity.   "We have families that have been coming since they were children and now they're bringing families of their own. It's a good memory for them," says Hubbard.

Picking out your tree at Hubbards is just part of the experience. They also give hayrides, pictures with Santa, and on the weekends sell concessions like hot cocoa.
