2021 COVID-19 Preparedness Update

Lengthy but please read 

The Zema’s Nursery Christmas tree season like so much else still requires adjustments during this on-going pandemic as we work to provide a safe and healthy shopping experience for all. Our operating process is again reworked with the goal of mitigating potential transmission of COVID 19, for a safer environment.    

We are working to follow established safety precautions including input from the NYS Agriculture Department and Christmas Tree Association of New York as well as other advisement resources per our industry, and plans are subject to change at any time if needed, as new information is made available. Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC), people of any age especially those with any underlying medical conditions may be at risk for severe illness from Coronavirus; so always evaluate your own risk. Even people showing no symptoms can spread Coronavirus if infected.  Any interaction with the public can pose an elevated risk of exposure.  We must all do our best to help protect one another.

  • Customers must tie and secure trees to their own vehicles themselves as per our insurance regulations and Corona virus precautions, we regretfully cannot assist.

Masks required to be worn at checkout


If you feel unwell or have any COVID-19 symptoms or were recently exposed to others with COVID-19, or traveled anywhere under current travel advisories and should be quarantining, follow those guidelines: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory and do not visit at this time.

We recommend our pre-cut “Grab & Go” premium trees for less handling required and many beautiful, popular sized trees.

No wagon rides available to our field & tree sizes there currently are limited. Read important details on that offering below.

No dogs allowed for 2021 as current guidelines do not permit dogs or other pets to accompany you.

Know your plan to secure and transport your tree home.  Bring a truck if possible, or a friend with one as we are not able to assist with that.  Also view helpful videos (i.e. Youtube, done by others) with tips on properly tying a Christmas tree to your vehicle.

NOTE:  We are open 6 days a week and visiting during off-peak days and times may assist with social distancing.

Tree Sizes Limited
Sorry NO Wagon Rides This Year

Weekdays Open For Off-Peak Times

To contend with challenging COVID-19 safety precautions, new routines are: 
Now you choose, cut, and carry your tree yourself without assistance from us, down the hill and to our sales area for measuring and payment; then you must secure it to your vehicle ‘as is’ yourself. So NO additional handling then – including drilling or netting is provided by us per distancing protocols. Helpful hand carts, hand saws*, and twine, are available for your use.
*–To minimize contact, you may bring your own hand saw. No chain saws or other power equipment are allowed.


Therefore if we are extremely busy at that time, it may require you returning on another day to pick it up.  

Phone 518.733-5868 during open hours if any questions.

REMEMBER: Pre-plan how to secure your tree to your vehicle yourself without our assistance per social distancing. See helpful tying tips on the internet (i.e. Youtube, done by others). And even, bring a truck or a friend with a truck if you can!
