Just want a tree?
If you want a more classic tree-cutting adventure, head to Pine Flats Christmas Tree Farm (18434 Ivy Road, Carthage, 417-358-2555). Carl Bridges and his wife have lived on the farm 50 years, and have Scotch pines and white pines available for cutting. Just head to the farm anytime during the day, cut your own tree, and pay $20 when you leave. Easy!
