Here's where to cut your own Christmas tree within driving distance of San Antonio

Sure, you can buy a pre-cut tree from any local lot, or dust off that faux version in a box hidden somewhere in the attic. But there's something magical about the holiday tradition of going out into a field, finding the perfect Christmas tree and cutting it down yourself.

Whether you want to stay close to home or make it a family road trip, these spots within driving distance of the Alamo City are great places to start — or continue — the tradition of picking out your own live holiday tree.
