Christmas Tree Farms in New York State
When you plan your family trip to cut down a holiday tree, make sure to check in advance regarding policies the individual tree farm may have regarding cutting down the trees and payment. Some locations ask you to bring your own saw, but most will provide a cutting tool or go with you to pick and cut a tree. Most will accept a credit or debit card, but there are still some small farms that prefer cash only. Take a moment to research and even call in advance.
Note: One acre of Christmas trees produces oxygen for eighteen people daily!
I have listed prices available on the website or social media accounts of the Christmas Tree Farms listed below. I am not responsible for price differences. Remember, prices are subject to change.
To get the most complete information, give the farm a call or contact them via social media just in case they changed their hours.
