Celebrate the season and display your raw machismo in one swoop this December by chopping down your very own Christmas tree.
A handful of tree farms around Buffalo offer locals an opportunity to select and chop their own trees. Unlike the pop-up retail stands where pre-chopped trees are displayed on wooden stands and sold, chop-your-own trees are fresh as can be.
