Cut Your Own Christmas Tree

Where to go to hunt for your tree

With less than a month to go until Christmas, many people will be going down into their basements or up into their attics to set up their artificial tree for the holiday season.

For those people brave enough to want to cut down their own real trees, the NJ Department of Agriculture has put together a list of local farms that have plenty of options from which to choose. 

The lists are broken down by county; and here in Monmouth, some of the most popular tree spots are in Lincroft, Colts Neck and Farmingdale. For more information check out the list below.
