It’s that time of year when you start to prep that task list for the upcoming holly jolly season. After Thanksgiving, we’re in the home stretch toward peak holidays, and getting the most important holiday centerpiece — a Christmas tree — should be at the top of your list. These Christmas tree farms in NYC are packed with beautiful trees ready for picking. Find the perfect spruce or fir to complement your seasonal decorations. Make it easy and pick a pre-cut tree or go the adventurous route and chop your own. Not only will you find a top tannenbaum, you can make a day of it as many of these farms offer holiday activities like train rides, hot chocolate and even photos with Santa. Once you’ve found your tree, you can focus on a plan to visit all the holiday light displays, holiday markets and ice skating rinks around the city. Most tree farms open for business after Thanksgiving, but be sure to check each spot for operating hours.
