Do I really need to tag my Christmas tree early?
Goderie’s farm grown Christmas trees have appeared in Times Square holiday events and some of the most beautiful homes in the Adirondacks, too. You could say they’re a New York holiday tradition, and nothing will get you in the holiday spirit like a visit to the farm to pick out your perfect tree. A walk through rows of sweet-smelling fir and silver-green spruce trees on a crisp fall day with the people you love isn’t just a way to spend a day. It’s a way to remember it forever.
On a more Ebenezer Scrooge note, you don’t want some other family to get your family’s perfect tree, do you? Well, then, it’s settled. Get the family in the car and come on out to tag your Christmas tree before somebody else does. While you’re here, you can explore our selection of hand-crafted, award-winning wreaths and kissing balls, which, by the way, have hung on the doors of the Executive Mansion as well as the governor’s offices in Albany and New York City.
Why buy a live Christmas tree when I could buy a fake tree at a Big Box Store?
Wow. Let’s not go crazy with the Scrooge thing. Real Christmas trees bring the feeling of old-fashioned holiday traditions into your home, and wouldn’t that be something nice to look forward to? You know you love the smell of real Christmas tree. Who doesn’t? Plus, you’re supporting the local economy!
Choosing a live Christmas tree from a local farm is also environmentally friendly. Goderie Tree Farm provides a robust green belt where wildlife thrives. Our trees absorb carbon dioxide, provide fresh oxygen, stabilize the soil, and protect local water supplies. You can also recycle them and even use them for craft projects after the holidays. Can’t do that with a plastic tree.
So many beautiful trees! How do I choose the best one for my home?
Every live Christmas tree is unique, just like every home and every family. That’s what makes a day on the tree farm so fun. You’re looking for the tree that feels at home with your family.
