The Thanksgiving turkey has been consumed. Maybe you’ve started your Black Friday or Cyber Monday shopping. Now it’s time for the next holiday ritual—finding the perfect Christmas tree.
From Amityville to Montauk, Long Island has about a dozen tree farms, where enthusiastic families can cut a super-fresh spruce (or fir, or pine) at a modest cost. These farms range from simple, roadside acreage to full-fledged holiday extravaganzas. So whether you prefer a quick tree-cutting errand or a day out in Santa’s wonderland, consider a visit to one of these outdoor emporiums.
These farms are all located in Suffolk County, where farmland is more abundant, and are listed below by town. As always, find more ways to celebrate in our Holiday Fun Guide.
