Find a Christmas Tree at One of Westchester's Most Popular Spots

Don your coat and mittens and head out on a hunt for the perfect tree.

Cut Your Own at Wilkens Fruit & Fir Farm

Don your coat and mittens and hop aboard the tractor to ride out to the Yorktown Heights farm’s sloping fields of Douglas and Fraser firs. The process is simple: Wander the fields to find your perfect tree, consult the attached tag for height and pricing info, find a Wilkens staffer to borrow a saw, and get to work. (Alternatively, you can request that the tree be cut for you, but what fun is that?) From there, grab your claim receipt — and a complimentary cup of hot cider — while you wait for your tree to be trimmed, tied, and prepped for the ride home.

 

Choose Your Tree at Stew Leonard’s 

A Westchester holiday tradition, the Yonkers location sold nearly 20,000 trees in 2017. Sturdy Fraser firs and fragrant balsam trees arrive daily from the store’s Quebec farms (Don’t worry: Two trees are planted for each one that’s cut down). Outside, attendants help customers choose the right size and style before hauling them off for a fresh cut and wrap. Be sure to visit Stew’s holiday store. From lights and ornaments to wreaths, stockings, and tree skirts, it has everything else you could need to deck the halls.

 

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

One of the first signs that it’s the holiday season: houses lit up with strings of lights. But what if you don’t have the time or patience to line your eaves with twinkling icicles or to turn your front yard into a sea of nutcrackers and LED reindeer? NY Landscape Lighting will consult with you on design, install and remove all décor, and store it for next year. Average cost is around $3,000.
