My husband and I almost died in the county of Xmas Trees (Ashe County, NC) on our NC vacation from hell. Damn, we'd put the rest of that county on welfare if we didn't buy their trees - from their zillion and a half tree farms. That is one of the big economies of that region especially since all the old factories and such have moved away. Of course, watching a Christmas Tree truck with a trailer of such trees jack-knife on an icy road and come sliding at you - there is no better thrill and excitement!

And besides you just need a good German friend that has an annual Xmas tree burning on Easter Eve. It is a great tradition - big BonFire of Xmas trees, lots of knockwurst, sauerkraut, german beer and such. See link to 2001 Easter Eve http://www.yml.com/easter_fire/page.shtml?VN=419372
