Guide To Christmas Tree Farms In Eastern Mass.

Christmas Tree

Trying to find the perfect Christmas tree can be one of the most difficult tasks of the season. Do you go with a real one or a fake? Do you cut it down yourself or let someone else do it? And what kind do you get if you get a live one?

Well, we can't answer those questions for you, but should you decide to go with the real thing, we can help you find a cut-your-own Christmas tree farm nearby.

Before you head out, some things of which to take note:

  • Spruces shed their needles faster than firs
  • Some farms supply saws, others don't – make sure you check
  • Some farms charge per foot, others charge a flat rate no matter the height
  • Many Christmas tree farms do not accept credit or debit cards
