As the weather begins to chill, I know that we start to think about the holiday season, including which Long Island Christmas tree farm we are going to visit to really kick things off. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s is just around the corner, even though it’s difficult to believe. This time of year just seems to fly by, perhaps even faster than the rest of the year does.
I don’t like jumping the gun, but it really is true that when the calendar flips to November, hyper quick holiday mode seems to come in fast with it. It’s a lot to wrap your head around, but it’s such a great time of the year! Now that autumn’s Halloween fun, haunted houses, corn mazes, pumpkin picking, and apple picking season is over, it’s time to enjoy some of the best Long Island tree farms! Few things scream joy and warm feelings more than a beautifully decorated Christmas tree!
Whether you want to cut down your own tree or prefer buying a freshly-cut one, here’s a great list of 12 Long Island tree farms starting west and heading east for you to check out. I hope you can find the perfect Long Island Christmas tree farm for you and your family! Support your local farmers all year long!
