What are Cut your own Christmas Tree Farms?
A visit to one of the many Cut your own Christmas Tree farms in the Hudson Valley is a unique way to begin the Holiday Season.
Although my mother extravagantly decorates her home for Christmas, she has always opted for an artificial tree. Even though it’s not a real tree, she has a premium, very full and elaborately decorated Christmas tree which she treasures till this day.
My father-in-law, on the other hand, had a tradition of going to cut his own Christmas tree at one of the many cut your own Christmas Tree farms in the Hudson Valley. He enjoyed the entire experience and has tried several Christmas Tree Farms in the Hudson Valley: some where you cut your own and others where someone cuts the one you choose for you.
This is a family tradition for many. And a great one it is. What better way to spend the day than to be surrounded by majestic and stunning tress. The smell alone puts me in the holiday spirit.
