If you’re looking to buy a Christmas tree, we’ve got a few options in the neighborhood, and from what we saw, you can’t go wrong at any of them
That sweet and woody scent fills the air as Christmas tree sites pop up around the neighborhood, and with really nice trees in a variety of types and sizes at almost every spot we’ve passed by so far, your best bet may be just picking the location closest to you (though there’s also an option for delivery that’s hard to beat). It looks like all the familiar spots are back up and running already, so here are just a few we’ve spotted:
8th Avenue & 8th Street
Foley Firs is back with trees, wreaths, tree stands, and more on weekdays 1-9pm, weekends 10am-10pm. Plus, part of the purchase price will go to benefit the local public school of your choice — including PS 10, PS 107, PS 124, PS 295, or any others you’d like to suggest. And because that’s not enough, you can also get your tree delivered — an you can even order it online.
Outside CVS, 9th Street between 5th & 6th Avenues
Once again, these guys will be here 24/7 until Christmas.
Our Lady’s Field, 16th Street just off Prospect Park West
Adam Parke brings organic, pesticide-free trees (and delicious syrup!) down from his own Vermont farm to seven Brooklyn locations from 9am-9pm daily through Christmas.
Park Slope Hardware, 593 5th Avenue between 16th Street and Prospect Avenue
The local shop has a nice selection outside (pictured above), and, if you’re getting a big one and you live nearby, they may be able to deliver — just ask. Hours are Monday-Friday, 8am-8pm, Saturday-Sunday 8am-7pm.
CNS Family Hardware, 594 5th Avenue between 16th Street and Prospect Avenue
Just across the street, this other handy hardware store has a bunch of good looking trees as well. They’re open a touch later most days: Monday-Saturday, 8am-8:30pm, Sunday 10am-6pm.
Lowe’s, 118 2nd Avenue at 10th Street
You’ll probably find the cheapest trees here — and, if picking it out yourself isn’t a priority, they can do a truck delivery if you order online, it’s just crazy expensive.
