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.

Here’s a list of local farms, courtesy of ChristmasTreeMap.com and the Evergreen 2012 Buyers Guide, that allow buyers to cut down their own trees:

Arboretum on Blue Hill
981 Jamison Road, Elma

Jurek Trees
6600 Strickler Road, Clarence 14031
11370 Hunts Corners Road, Akron 14001

Hills Christmas Tree Farm
13214 Belscher Road, Springville, 14141

Highlander Forest
11730 Warner Gulf Road, East Concord, 14055

Country Pine Farm
10855 Partridge Road, Holland, 14080

Roth’s Hillside Tree and Produce Farm
182 N. Main Street, Holland 14080

Kathie and Jerry’s Christmas Trees
1731 Gowans Road, Angola

For those who opt to buy real but don’t want to do their own cutting, be sure to check for freshness. The Buffalo News offers these tips to tree-buyers who need a little guidance.
