WHERE TO GET YOUR LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS TREE IN NEW YORK CITY
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, right? Or at least it should be. What with holiday parties, shopping, and everything in between – we hold no judgment for those of you who have been meaning to put up that tree. And we’re not talking about the no-mess, no-scent, no-fun kind of tree that comes pre-made; we mean real trees that fill your home with a fragrance that many candles try to recreate, and ones that may leave just a little bit of mess as they shed their pine needles throughout the holiday season. With just over 1 week left to purchase, decorate, and even enjoy the season staple you might think you’ve missed out and have to wait until next year, but you’re in luck as we’ve asked our neighborhood expert agents to keep their eyes peeled for where to find the best last-minute Christmas Tree vendors in New York City:
SoHo Trees – The ultimate one stop shop for all things needed to deck your halls with holiday cheer. With a promise to “deliver Christmas magic to New York City”, they have their bases covered with 10 different locations around Manhattan and Brooklyn and including SoHo, TriBeCa, the Upper Eastside, Midtown East and Midtown West.
Tyler’s Trees - Getting a hold of a Christmas Tree in a New York City minute is just a few clicks away with the city’s premier online tree delivery service. A traditional Fraser Fir straight from a North Carolina Christmas Tree farm in your size of choice is available at a few different price ranges, and not only do they deliver this holiday staple – they even install it so all you have to do is add the finishing touches. They were even profiled by the New York Post for an expected record breaking 2013 season.
Greenpoint Trees – While they also offer a reputable delivery service, (set-up and decorations included for varying price points), Brooklyn-ites in search of creating their own Griswald holiday can head to one of their two locations (Manhattan Ave. and Calyer St. in Greenpoint, or Berry St. at North 7th St. in Williamsburg) and pick one that meets their fancy.
H&H Kim Corp – The trusty ole’ bodega saves the day again. The tradition of getting a Christmas Tree from your local bodega is something only true New Yorkers will come to know, and H&H Kim’s is a mainstay in Little Italy and has been selling the goods for the last 20 years right on the corner of Thompson St. and Prince St.
SoHo Garden – Situated in Nolita on Prince and Mulberry Street, they’ve been a neighborhood mainstay for quite some time too, although sadly this might be this last year so make sure get em while they’re still on hand.
Botanica – situated on Atlantic Avenue in Boreum Hill, Brooklyn, this vendor might be sitting adjacent to retailer Lowes, but his loyal customers know if they want the best value to go here.
Greg’s Quality Christmas Trees – McCarren Park, Williamsburg/Greenpoint. Touted as selling the most beautiful trees in all the land, Greg Walsh returns year after year with his selection of hand-picked, fragrant and lush trees from Oregon. Guests will think you went straight to the woods and chopped down your own.
