The Thanksgiving turkey has been consumed. You've completed your Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping. Now it’s time for the next holiday ritual—finding the perfect Christmas tree.
From Cold Spring Harbor to Montauk, Long Island has close to a dozen tree farms, where enthusiastic families can cut a fresh spruce, fir, or pine for 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 cut-your-own Christmas tree farms.
These farms are all located in Suffolk County, where farmland is more abundant, and are listed by town. If you want to get away, consider a day trip to one of the Christmas tree farms in New Jersey or the Hudson Valley.
As always, find more ways to celebrate in our Holiday Fun Guide.
