Today is OPENING DAY! Come down to get your Christmas tree, wreaths, and holiday decorations. We are open from 9AM to 5:30PM today!


Just a reminder... We are not currently open and will not be open until Friday, November 26th at 9 AM.


We are currently in the midst of our wholesale season, but opening day for retail is Black Friday at 9:00AM. See you then!


I regret to announce that I will have to close operations early this season due to a partial roof collapse at my barn facility. I had plans to replace the header on this roof section after the season but the snow has changed things in that regard. I will likely remove and rebuild the shed entirely over the coming winter. Thank you for your patronage during these trying times and I look forward to seeing you again next season. Have a Merry Christmas! David Weil

It's a winter wonderland here at Empire Evergreens! The drives are plowed out and we are open for business 9 to 5:30 daily.


Due to heavy freezing rain this morning (12/1/19), we are suspending choose & cut tree selection until conditions improve. We hope to resume normal operations once conditions warm and the rain changes over to just snow. We do not salt our gravel driveways because of potential damage to the surrounding trees so extreme caution is recommended for those looking for pre-cuts this morning. Be safe!


Merry Christmas from all of us here at Empire Evergreens! Thank you very much for your patronage in 2014 and we'll start right back to work growing your tree for next year...okay...we might take a couple days off first. Happy Holidays!


Thanks to everyone who came out and purchased trees from us this weekend! Between the rain and the crowds it was a tough go but we got through it without injury, accident, or calamity. Thanks for packing your patience as we did our best to get everyone taken care of in short order. New seedlings are already ordered for next year and cycle of life will continue! Bigger and better yet again...


Come out and celebrate the Christmas season at Empire Evergreens this year! Our award winning trees and gigantic selection make finding your perfect tree an easy task! Choose and cut prices range from 35 to 50 dollars and we shake, wrap and drill at no extra charge. We also carry beautiful poinsettias, wreaths and kissing balls to round out your holiday decoration.


We're on a roll this year...Our Balsam Fir claimed Grand Champion tree at the NYS Fair this year. Our Colorado Spruce earned a 2nd place finish and we claimed 3rd for our Canaan, Douglas, White Spruce and White Pine. Not bad for a first attempt at competition! Now we're gearing up for what we expect to be another tremendous Christmas sales season

If you're looking for a great quality Christmas tree we have some beautiful locally sourced New York fir trees...Douglas, Frasier and Concolor!

Our fir trees come from Empire Evergreens located just outside Corning. Founded in 2003 by David Weil, Empire Evergreens is one of New York’s finest conifer plantations with over 200,000 trees! Thanks to David and his crew we have the best trimmed and shaped trees that, with the right care (don’t forget to water them!) last a long time!
