Cutting down your own Christmas tree has always been something I have wanted to do. The Hallmark Channel Christmas movies inspired me to do this for many years.

The Hudson Valley is the most ideal location to pick your very own Christmas tree. There must be something so refreshing such as being in nature during the cooler months surrounded by beautiful pines and breathing in the fresh air.

I would imagine that you would have to wear snow boots, dress warm and most importantly, call ahead to get proper instructions and see what tools are needed if not provided. I would recommend also asking if reservations are needed before hand.

If you are planning on cutting down your own Christmas tree this year, be sure to take some great shots and send them our way. We would love to see your storybook experience.

Here are a few places within the Hudson Valley to cut down your very own pine.
