Choosing and cutting a tree at a local farm can be a fun, educational outing for the whole family. Local tree farms also help protect open space, soak up carbon dioxide and support Jersey farmers.

Christmas tree farming peaked in New Jersey in the '80s and has dropped somewhat in recent years as farms have given way to development. Those farmers who remain say their biggest challenge is keeping up with demand. It takes seven to 12 years for trees to reach marketable size, so responding to market forces is a slow-motion end eavor.

The following farms offer locally grown Christmas trees freshly cut or as cut-your-own. Be sure to call ahead to check availability and hours of operation. And when you get home, remember to place your tree's cut trunk in water immediately and water it regularly for a maximum life span. For more information, visit njchristmastrees.org.
