Founded in 1953, as the New York Christmas Tree Growers' Association we changed our name to Christmas Tree Farmers Association of New York in January, 1999.

Christmas tree farming in New York State can be a rewarding full or part-time occupation. Unfortunately, that is not the way it works out for many people who enter the business. To bring your risk down to an acceptable level, it is crucial to be informed about the basics of the industry before you make large commitments.
