Town of Union, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Picking the right tree for the holidays can be an important process, one that many went through on Sunday to make sure they got just the right one.

The rain and mud didn't stop some shoppers.

At Kodey's Tree Farm in the Town of Union, many chose a tree from a large selection of firs.

That's where owner Joe Kodey says 90% of tree sales come from.

Whether they be frasier, douglas or canaan fir trees, Kodey says they hold the needle the longest.

Some shoppers gave insight to peoples favorite trees, and why they chose the trees they do.

Stewart Crane said he got a canaan fir.

"From what I understand they hold the needles a little bit longer, which is good because we like to keep the tree up a little while after christmas is over," Crane said.

Shauna and Paul Caletaa said they just wanted a big tree, and don't care what kind it was.

Cathy Bigart said, "Whatever looks good, and what ever smells good an is fresh."

After fir trees, white pines and white spruces sell the best at the Kodey's.
