Edgewater Tree Barn?s trees travel from both local farms and the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to decorate living rooms for the holiday season. On sturdy branches, the needles of the fraser and douglas firs twinkle magically under the rays of colorful Christmas tree lights. The trees range in height from 5 to 13 feet, allowing them to fit into tight corners or tower majestically in a stately living room or two-story cave. The lot also supplies wreaths, roping, and other seasonal decorating tools.
In addition to populating homes with seasonal greenery, the holiday helpers behind Edgewater Tree Barn also embody the spirit of the season through their ongoing charitable work. This year, they're collecting supplies for a local animal shelter and the pets in its care.

Once the chopper lifts off from the Hook Pier Heliport and rises above New York Harbor, the Big Apple's sprawling metropolis fills passengers' sightlines. Rotors spinning, the copter flies past the Statue of Liberty and toward the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, and other looming examples of urban architecture. During these tours, sightseers sit comfortably within one of the company's five Bell 407 helicopters, which boast giant windows and enough legroom to roundhouse kick roving bands of skydivers looking to freeload their way onto the aircraft. The helicopter pilots also charter their aircraft on trips to cities including Boston and Atlantic City.
