An artificial tree has serious perks – you can pull it out and set it up, mess-free, in about six minutes. Plug it in without negotiating tangled light strings first. Yet, picking out a Christmas tree at a lot or farm is a magical experience – especially with kids. If you’re on Team Real Tree, we’ve rounded up Christmas Tree Farms in the Myrtle Beach area for you.
