Where to Cut Your Own Christmas Tree

Here's a roundup of Mercer County places where you can cut your own tree.


Where will you go to get 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 tree for the holiday season.

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

The lists are even broken down by county. For more information check out this website or the list below.
