Where to Get a Christmas Tree Near Here

Plenty of trees in stock; here's a guide to the varieties available.

There are plenty of places in eastern Nassau County to pick out this year's Christmas tree.

The cost depends on the size and type of tree, but the general price range begins around $40 and climbs to as much as $250. Christmas wreaths begin around $12-$15.

Here are some local businesses with trees for sale:

Farmingdale

Plainview (nearest)

  • Meyer's Farm, stand just off Woodbury Road in Woodbury.

Glen Cove

Massapequa

Syosset

  • St. Edward the Confessor Church on Jackson Avenue. Tree sale is part of a fundraiser.
  • 250 Jackson Ave.

To help select your favorite tree, the characteristics of the more popular species are listed below.

Douglas-fir:  This tree is generally available as a sheared tree and is the most common species found on tree lots.

Noble fir:  This species is considered the “Cadillac” of Christmas trees.  It grows in a more open pattern, has stout branches, luxurious green needles, a long shelf life and a nice fragrance.

Grand fir:  This sheared tree is the most fragrant of the native species.  It has an attractive needle that makes it a popular choice as a flocked tree.

Fraser fir:  This North Carolina native has strong branches that will hold heavier ornaments. 

Norway and blue spruce trees: These are generally available only at choose-and-cut farms. They will hold heavy decorations.

Tips for caring for your tree:

Once you make it home with your tree, cut one-quarter inch off the butt and place the tree in a water stand. The stand should be large enough to hold at least one gallon of water after the tree is placed in it.

And, remember to check the water level daily.
