    A Jackson farm is embracing the “season of giving” by offering free Christmas trees to families.

    Cicconi Farms, a Jackson staple since the 1960s, has a surplus of 60 to 70 Fraser Fir and Douglas Fir trees.

    “There is nothing sadder than a Christmas tree that has not found a home for Christmas,” says farm owner Al Cicconi. 

    He says that he’s looking for families in need of a tree or who would like a second one.

    “Please stop by,” Cicconi wrote on the farm’s Facebook page. “We have sizes from six-foot to ten-foot tall, watered daily — they are still nice and fresh. We’ll even net and tie it on your roof — our gift to you!”

    Cicconi Farms is located at 1005 Farmingdale Road in Jackson and will be open Dec. 23 from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. and Christmas Eve from 9 a.m. until noon.
