Cut Your Own Christmas Tree!

By Hazen Reed
    
One of my favorite memories from my childhood is driving out to my mother's farm and cutting our Christmas tree. It was a special occasion each year and we all loved the adventure of hiking out into the pine forest, kids running wild through the snow, with dogs bouncing out in front, all in search of that year's holiday center-piece. And while we're not heading to mom's farm in Ohio any longer, we do have ideal opportunities here in the western Catskills to pick our own tree. And now, as then, we make it a special trip each year, with the kids, the dogs and the handsaw.

Here's where to find your Christmas tree in our area:

 

Brady's Christmas Tree Farm

This is our go-to spot for the past five years. It is simple, easy and always has gret trees. The Brady's offer excellent prices, and anything extra you can share he donates to the Boy Scouts!
