Buy a Fresh and Local Christmas Tree This Year

The holidays are upon us and Oswego County Christmas tree farmers are ready to help you find the perfect tree!

Big or small, skinny or round, you can find that tree that is just right for you on one of the many local tree farms.

Buying local not only supports Oswego County farm businesses, it also assures you have the freshest tree possible.

Fresh cut trees smell better and keep their needles longer.

“Real Christmas trees are the best choice for both the environment and the economy. Real Christmas trees are a renewable and recyclable resource. They are grown as a crop, by local farmers who provide jobs for others. Trees are harvested and replenished annually. As they grow, real trees absorb harmful carbons and produce fresh oxygen. If purchased locally, and displayed properly with plenty of water, most real Christmas trees have excellent needle retention. Many of our customers report few or no needles on the floor after several weeks in their homes. While most people enjoy the aroma of our farm fresh trees, we also grow a fragrance-free variety that is a favorite with people with sensitive noses,” explained Faye Beckwith from Beckwith Family Christmas Tree Station in Hannibal.

Buying a fresh and local Christmas tree is also a great bonding experience for families.

Beckwith said, “The experience of going to the farm to choose the perfect tree fosters family traditions and creates memories that last a lifetime. We have several four generation families who come annually to ride the tractor-drawn wagon to the fields – in search of the perfect tree.”

Following is a list from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County of the tree farms in Oswego County.
