Many people consider it a tradition to find the perfect Christmas tree.
Families make precious memories when they bundle up, put on holiday music and drive to the Christmas tree farm to see the rows of Norway Spruce and Douglas Fir. Have you ever been to one of these farms? This extensive list of farms in New Jersey will help you find the right one for you.
Be aware of what you are allowed and not allowed to bring. Many farms won’t allow personal handsaws or power saws. They only accept cash or checks. Most farms have relaxed their covid regulations due to tree-finding being an outdoor activity. However, it is a good idea to bring a mask just for this purpose. As many farms reported low tree numbers this year, we recommend that you go early in the season. It is a good idea not to wait to see if the trees have sold out.
