Cookeville Residents Asked To Buy Local Trees

The Tennessee Department of Agriculture -- as part of its Pick Tennessee Products campaign -- is urging Cookeville area residents to purchase their live Christmas trees from a local grower. The Ag Department says there are at least four locations in Putnam County where you can get a tree, including Fasco Service, Inc. at 4113 Hwy 70 East; Four D Farms at 617 Peach Orchard Road, the Mark 4 Christmas Tree Farm at 535 Kinniard Rd, and Thousand Pines Christmas Tree Farm, located at 6985 Thomas Twin Oaks Road. The local growers offer varieties of spruce, fir and pine trees, which you can choose and cut yourself .. or purchase balled in burlap. You may want to call in advance to check on availability and exact directions to the farms.
