Here’s Where to Buy a Christmas Tree in Westchester

Don your coat and mittens, grab an axe, and head out on the hunt for the perfect tree at these evergreen Westchester fir traders.

With Turkey Day finally behind us, it’s officially time for Westchesterites to get in the holiday spirit. But before you can string up the lights, you have to find the perfect Christmas tree — or Hanukkah bush, right nana? — and to do that you’re going to want to hit up one of Westchester’s favorite locales.

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.

*Due to COVID-19 restrictions, for 2020 no food or drink will be permitted and tractors will only be available to transport trees back from the fields; guests must walk.

Choose Your Tree at Stew Leonard’s 

A Westchester holiday tradition, the Yonkers location alone 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.
