Featured Video Play Icon

At last, the holiday season is upon us! We’ve composted our farm-picked pumpkins and gourds, cleared off our Thanksgiving tables, and now it’s time to start checking off that December bucket list. First up, picking out and cutting down your very own Christmas tree! It’s not as daunting as it may seem – New York state is filled with Christmas tree farms within a couple hours from the city. Grab some hot cocoa, jump in the car, crank up your favorite holiday tunes and make a day out of it!

See below for a list of farms just a hop, skip and a jump from NYC.

Please visit the individual websites and/or call ahead for farm hours, tree availability, and tree-cutting regulations.
