LUBBOCK, TX -- With Thanksgiving now behind us, folks have shifted their attention to the December holiday and are decorating their homes with a fresh cut Christmas tree.

The Masons are just one of dozens of families who visit the Double Shovel Tree Farm at 1391 CR 183 in Post every Christmas. 

“We just thought it would be neat to start bringing our family out to actually walk through the trees and be able to cut down our own tree,” said Tye Mason. 

It’s the family’s first year to saw down their own Christmas tree, but they hope to make it a family tradition for years to come. 

“I just think it's neat to have those certain holiday traditions to just be as a family and the fact of being able to do it together,” said Mason.  “Something we can look forward to every year.”

The Double Shovel Tree Farm sold their first tree in 2012, but has been in business growing the plants since 2009. 

There are roughly 4 acres and 3,000 Afghan Pines to choose from.

The farm is open every weekend up until Christmas on Friday afternoons, Saturday 10am-5pm and Sunday 1pm-5pm. 

If those times don’t work you can call and schedule an appointment at 806-632-8728.
