November 23, 2008. Ashe County, NC.. The Christmas tree industry in Ashe County.. Multiple signs point the way to the many X-Mas tree farms in Ashe County, which is considered the tree capitol of North Carolina, which is the second highest tree producing state in the country, after Oregon, but grosses more cash than any other state.. Over 2 million trees are exported from Ashe County alone, most being shipped in the week leading up to Thanksgiving, which is the busiest for the industry.
