Though we live just off the Blue Ridge Parkway near Elkin NC, we’ve enjoyed visiting the Tennessee mountains numerous times over the last few years. 
In our experience, there’s something undeniably quaint and charming about the Tennessee Mountain Towns, no matter what time of year you visit. 
But when we visit Tennessee during Christmas in the Smoky Mountains, it feels like the festive lights and decorations make them seem even more magical!
Although they may not be as well-known on a national level as the ones near us in Boone NC, there are a number of great Christmas tree farms in Tennessee to choose from.
And while the vast majority are located in the Blue Ridge Mountains region, you can also find some TN Xmas tree farms as far west as Nashville.

Read on for our in-depth guide to the best Christmas tree farms in TN, including farms near Bristol, Chattanooga, Johnson City, Knoxville, and Murfreesboro.

We encourage anyone who loves the Blue Ridge region to learn about the Leave No Trace principles of responsible environmental stewardship. 

Stay on marked trails, take only pictures, pack out your trash, and be considerate of others who share the trails and parks you explore. 

Remember that waterfalls and rocky summits can be dangerous. Never try to climb waterfalls or get close to a ledge to get a selfie.

When you're exploring the wilderness, it's better to be safe than to be a statistic!
