🌲 Pre-cut + ready to get lit

Hillenmeyer Christmas Shop, 120 Sycamore Rd. | This 70+ year family tradition has moved to Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate this year, blending two holiday classics together.

King’s Garden Center, 4560 Nicholasville Rd. | The greenhouse turns into a winter wonderland with freshly cut Christmas tree varieties including Fraser, Grand, and Concolor firs. Wow your guests with other live festive greenery + decor like wreaths, centerpieces, and garland.
