Tips for what to wear and bring to cut your Christmas tree.

Dress for the weather. If there is snow on the ground, wear boots. Most places provide a saw to cut your tree, but check each farm’s description to be certain. It’s also a good idea to call ahead, especially later in the season, to make sure the farm is open and trees are still available.
