Yes, it's barely October, but that doesn't mean we can't plan ahead for that first snowfall. The United States is home to approximately 15,000 Christmas tree growers, according to Iowa Christmas Tree Farms.

We're about a month and a half out from the prime Christmas tree cutting season. According to a few gardening sites, the best time to get out there with the family and cut down a beautiful Christmas tree is late November to mid-December.

If you want to plan for this special family tradition, why not go all out with one of the many Christmas Tree farms in Iowa. Here is a full list of all of the spots across the state that you can take a look at.
