December is nearly here meaning it’s time to bundle up and head out to chop down your very own Christmas tree.

The Incline rounded up this list of 18 places within 50 miles of the city where you can go and work for — read: cut down — your evergreen.

A few pro-tips before you go: While other parts of the country are experiencing a Christmas tree shortage, that’s not the case in Western Pa.KDKA reported. But people are buying trees earlier and earlier, so the sooner you go the better. Some of these farms require appointments, and the types of trees and sizes vary. Many don’t accept cards, so you’ll need cash or check. Check out their websites, or give the farm a call first.
