One of the most popular Christmas traditions every year is heading out to find the perfect Christmas tree for you or your family. While there might be more options to choose from in Birmingham, there are plenty of places around Tuscaloosa to find a tree that you'll love.

Whether you're looking for a tree that Clark Griswold would be envious of or trying to keep it more modest with a lower price tag, you'll be able to accomplish just that at one of these Christmas tree locations around Tuscaloosa.

  • Murphy Christmas Tree Farm

    This is the only local tree farm near Tuscaloosa and has two locations.

    1. 7209 Mill Way, behind Murphy Place subdivision on Bear Creek Road off Alabama Highway 69 S.

    2. 14442 Preacher Lee Road at mile marker 8 off Alabama Highway 171 in Northport.

  • Belle Foods on McFarland

    The former Bruno's supermarket on McFarland Blvd is located directly across the street from Midtown Village. They are set up directly along the road in the parking lot and have a big selection of trees.

    Bonus nugget: This is a great spot to return your tree for recycling after Christmas.

  • Lowe's Home Improvement

    Believe it or not, this home improvement store actually carries live trees as well. They might not be as fresh as local farms, but they still carry a nice selection and the prices are pretty affordable.

    Much like Lowe's, Home Depot offers a large selection of real Christmas trees along with the artificial ones you might expect to find. The only store in the area is next to Target off 15th Street.

    Home Depot also shows its selection of Christmas trees on their website to help you make a selection and get an idea of prices.
