Every year I tell myself that I am going to get a jump on Christmas. I'll start shopping early, and definitely be the first in my family to have my tree selected, cut and decorated. Then I see 50 cars on Troy Schenectady Road with trees on their roof. Not this year!

The weekend following Thanksgiving is a great time to get your Christmas tree. Whether you like a fresh cut tree or you want to cut your own, the Capital Region has several great locations to choose from. Here is a good list, in no particular order, to get you going.
