Holland, N.Y. (WKBW) - There is nothing like a fresh cut tree to get you in the spirit of Christmas. Country Pine Tree Farm in Holland can help you get the perfect symbol of the season.

"We have Cannons, Frasier Furs, Colorado, Norway and Serbian Spruce," Owner Ann Zywiczynski said.

The difference between those trees is the strength, size and shape of the needles.

"Blue Spruce are a strong needle and a lot of people have heavy ornaments that they want to put on there so it's preference of individual," Zywiczynski said.

The hot and extremely dry summer made growing the trees a bit more difficult this year.

"All farms had to be irrigated. We did lose some of the new seedlings. The old trees weren't affected that much but we noticed the growth hasn't been that strong this year," Zywiczynski said.

Zywiczynski said some trees are more beautiful than ever. They try to stay around the same price every year, for quality that she says can't be beat.

"Generally, we keep our trees at about $48 to $50 for you-cut trees and pre-cut. This is up to 10 feet, anything over is individually priced," Zywiczynski said.

Ann said it's not only the trees that make her farm special.

"Our gift shop is in our 1800's barn, remodeled. We offer all types of gifts," Zywiczynski said.

The trees, nostalgic barn and old fashion Christmas feel are all wrapped up to make the holiday experience one to remember for years to come.

"Keeping tradition alive. It's one the number one priority," Zywiczynski said.

If you would like to visit a Country Pine Farm, they are located on Humphries Road in Holland. The farm is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through December 23rd.
