CORPUS CHRISTI -- We're exactly one month away from Christmas...and people are swarming local tree farms to bring home the perfect tree, or in some cases, trees!
Darrell Hostetler said, "Actually we're going to have two trees. We're going to have a regular tree and we're going to have a Charlie Brown tree, everybody ought to have a Charlie Brown tree."
We stopped by the West Value Tree Farms tent in the Sunrise Mall parking lot.
They opened on Friday and will stay open every day from 9: 00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. through Christmas.
These trees come from a farm in Oregon.
If you want to try something different, you can even have your tree painted in bright colors or flock your tree.
Flocking is when you put a texture on the tree to look like snow.
The owner of this business says he's been in Corpus Christi for 30 years.
Mike Dixon, the owner, said, "Oh yeah, well some of the kids they used to come in as little toddlers and they now have a family of their own and bringing in their kids, pretty neat."
They're expecting a brand new shipment of Christmas trees here by tomorrow, so there will be plenty of options.
