Tips for cutting down your Christmas tree from tree farms around New Haven, CT:

First, don't just head out into the woods and make like Paul Bunyan - that's illegal. A local New Haven Connecticut tree farm will have much nicer, fuller Christmas trees due to the pruning and care they receive over the years.

Go early. Waiting until the night before Christmas to get your tree may leave you trekking across lots of empty spaces filled with the 'ghosts of trees past' in New Haven tree farms.

Bring a handsaw (some farms will loan you one). Chainsaws and axes are usually not allowed at most New Haven tree farms. You'll want to cut it as close to the ground as possible, in order to have enough trunk to give it a second cut when you get home. The second cut allows the Christmas tree to soak up water, THE key to keeping your tree fresh through the holidays.

Most Christmas tree farms around Connecticut will put mesh around your tree; leave it on until you're ready to set it up at home.

When you get the tree home, tap it on the driveway to shake off the loose needles from the tree, then give it a second cut and set it in a bucket of water. Once its in the house, keep the temperature a little lower, around 65 degrees or so. This will keep your freshly cut New Haven Connecticut Christmas tree looking and smelling fresh throughout the parties, presents and holiday fun.
