Where to cut your own Christmas Tree?

Don't flame me, but a real question for a change. Where is the best place to go cut your own Christmas Tree around here? I remember doing this with my Dad yrs ago out in Loudon or someplace, but can't recall the name of the farm. Not looking to spend $100 on a tree, but want to take the kids out to try it for a change.

There are some beautifully landscaped homes in Great Falls that have nice pine trees planted on their properties. All you need is a hacksaw and the cover of darkness.

Have a Merry Christmas.

Colvin Run Park has some nice ones. Get there early, the illegals pick them over pretty good.

A few years ago I found a place to cut one down in Markham out near Front Royal.

Good experience with them two years in a row. However, it is a bit of a drive.

It's actually sorta funny (sad) because shit like that used to happen while I was growing up. One Dec., someone went into a yard near my grandmother's house, cut down a bunch of spruce trees that lined the property, and hauled them off (presumably for christmas trees).

Sorta funny & ridiculous when you think about it.

I haven’t been there for years, but a good place to pick out and cut down your own tree was the Snickers Gap tree farm in Round Hill. We haven’t gone there for several years (yes, I bought an artificial tree once that the kids were grown), but we had fun picking out trees with kids there before.

Evergreen Farms in Nokesville is a good place, and not as far out as some of the other Christmas Tree farms.

Anyone remember Porter's Christmas Tree Farm on Browns Mill Road in Vienna? That was probably the last one in the county. Now it's just a bunch of McMansions.

Apparently Mr. Porter was a decorated WWII vet: http://www.arlingtoncemetery.net/heporter.htm

PS: Fuck Safari. Fuck it in the ass. Just before I finished this post, it decided to reload all windows for no reason, an I lost all my typing.

There is a list of places to cut your own Christmas tree in todays Weekend section (page 4) of the Washington Post today.

Thank you all with real responses.

And no, not going to great falls to chop down somebody's landscaping. Even if they are a stuck up rich jerk, that's not cool.
