Battenfeld's Christmas Tree Farm: Cut Your Own Tree

Posted By on Fri, Nov 29, 2013 at 9:00 AM

Looking for the perfect tree at Battenfelds Christmas Tree Farm

A friend of mine recommended Battendeld's Christmas Tree Farma few years ago, and we went there to chop our own tree. Battenfeld's Christmas Tree Farm in Red Hook, and easy to get to as it is right on Route 199. We parked the car, borrowed a saw at the office for $10 deposit, and were given brief instructions, and drove up the hill to pick out our Christmas tree. It was a bone-chilling 20F and my husband was very eager to use the saw, so it only took us 5 minutes to choose our tree, and took about 60 seconds to chop it. Timber! We hoisted it on top of the car, and went back to the main office area to get it prepped for its new home. All trees cost $60 including tax. The guys at Battenfeld's were very cool, and did a great job securing the tree to the top of the car. It didn't even budge on the ride of the Kingston Bridge! Merry Christmas tree!
