Old Congaree Run, choose and cut Christmas Tree farm near Columbia

Posted By ShoutCarolina,Date: 10.23.2008

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree!
Thou tree most fair and lovely!

Hmmm, that fresh cut pine tree smell…a magical aroma and reminder of love, family and good things to come. You may not get a white Christmas in Columbia, South Carolina, but you can definitely find some stunning Christmas trees at very affordable prices.

Like the Old Congaree Run Tree Farm located off of Garners Ferry Road between McEntire Air National Guard Base and Mr. Bunky’s store. I’ve known the owners for many years. I’m blessed to call them my friends, mentors and role models. You got the most honest to goodness, hard-working and passionate people in Columbia if not the state. Many people will pledge to it.

If you want some kindness, honest service and even a joke or two along with a beautiful Christmas Tree go visit them this Holiday Season. You can thank me later.

Here are the Tree Farm details…
Hop on the wagon for a FREE hay ride around the farm. The Fosters will gladly help you select and cut the perfect tree for your family. Of course you’re free to enjoy the fruits of hard labor and cut the tree yourself (they’ll give you a hand-saw just to get you started!)…

• Christmas Trees
- Choose-and-cut: Red Cedar ($6 a foot), Leyland Cypress, Virgina Pine, White Pine and Carolina Sapphire ($7 a foot)
- Fresh cut Fraser Firs from North Carolina ($8 a foot)

• Tim Mitchell tree stands ($20)
- Stands includes base, large bucket, floor protectors and drill stake
- Provides excellent balance and sturdiness, great for small and tall trees. No need to anchor your tree, just drop tree onto stake.
- They will clean, drill and bag the tree for you.

• Wreaths (starting at $15)

TIPS on Christmas tree maintenance
Make an incision at the bottom of the tree BEFORE you put it in the stand so it can properly soak in the water. Otherwise it’s a waste of time. The tree natural instinct kicks in as soon as it’s cut down, sealing the bottom to protect itself.

Speaking of water did you know that a tree drinks about 1 gallon per diameter per day per? Obey the thirst…
