If you wonder where you can cut your own Christmas tree, then we advise you to visit the Christmas tree farm this year. You may have never heard about this place, but it will be a great excuse for your family to spend time together!
Why should you choose a special farm?
Pine trees are specially grown on these farms, you don’t need a tree cutting permit and you can always take one of them home for Christmas and decorate with the whole family. So, a truly festive atmosphere will reign in your home.
Buying a Christmas tree on a farm is better than buying a Christmas tree in a shopping center parking lot, as many people do.
In addition to this, many people have recently complained about spotted lanternflies on their Christmas trees. To avoid this, take the advice of professionals from Philadelphia and go straight to the farm. There you can cut your own tree or order this service.

Go to the farm after you have completed the required steps.
