The Christmas holiday brings happiness, excitement, snow, and love for many families. For some it is the gift-giving, for others it is eating Christmas dinner, but for many it is selecting and decorating the perfect Christmas Tree together.  Whether you're Charlie Brown who thinks small trees need love too, or you have Rockefeller-type tastes, picking a tree with your family will create memories to last a lifetime. With tree farms all over the Hudson Valley, you will feel like you've picked a tree from your own backyard.
