We have 15 acres of ready-to-cut trees:
Although this type of tree doesn't have the strongest branches, it has the softest needles out of any of our trees. You can find these types of trees in our fields.
Well known as our best smelling Christmas tree, many people also choose this tree for its soft needles and strong branches. You can find these types of trees in our fields.
These trees have a narrow, pyramidal shape and cone-shaped crown. Leaves (needles) are 1 - 1 ½ inches long on lower branches but somewhat shorter on upper branches. They are 4-sided and have a very sharp point on the end. The blue spruce is finding increasing popularity as a Christmas tree as a result of its symmetrical form and attractive blue foliage. Its popularity as an ornamental leads many consumers to use blue spruce as a living Christmas tree, to be planted after the holiday season.
One of our strongest trees. although the needles are still pointy, they are way softer than the blue spruces. This is our most popular type of tree. You can find these trees in our fields.
We have an excellent selection of bagged trees. Our bagged trees are different from the conventional bag in burlap. Our trees are grown directly in the bag to provide the best root system possible for transplanting. They provide easier handling for transporting your tree indoors for the holiday.
|Made in Korea, Taiwan, or China. Importing artificial trees contributes to the US trade deficit.||Plantation-grown on American family farms|
|Made from nonrenewable plastics. Manufacturing process consumes natural resources, energy, and creates pollution.||Absorbs carbon dioxide and other harmful “greenhouse” gases and release fresh oxygen into the air|
|The average use of a fake tree is only 6 or 7 years. Eventually, they all go to the landfill as garbage.||For every Real Christmas tree harvested, another one is planted in its place to ensure a steady supply year after year. Christmas tree fields support turkey, quail, songbirds, rabbits and deer.|
|Not biodegradable. The plastics and metals that they contain, including lead, will remain in our landfills for centuries.||An all-American renewable, recyclable resource. After the holidays, they are chipped into biodegradable mulch which replenishes soil in landscapes, parks, and schools. Most communities offer recycling programs.|
Did you ever think that by using a live Christmas tree in your house that you were actually helping the environment? Real trees help the environment from the time they are planted until after the holiday season when they can be recycled.
While they are growing, Christmas trees support life by absorbing carbon dioxide and other gases while giving off fresh oxygen. Every acre of Christmas trees planted gives off enough oxygen to meet the needs of 18 people. Today in America there are enough Christmas trees planted that 18 million people a day are supplied with oxygen. Also, the farms that grow Christmas trees stabilize soil, protect water supplies, and provide a refuge for wildlife while creating a nice scenic view.
Often, Christmas trees are grown on soil that will not support any other crops. And when one Christmas tree is cut down, one or two are replanted in its place. Artificial trees are made from oil-based products that use up our natural resources. They are also not recyclable and will remain in land-fills for centuries after disposal.
Real Christmas trees, on the other hand, are recyclable. The branches and trunk are biodegradable and can be made into mulch for the garden. A Christmas tree placed in the back yard will make a nice bird feeder and the birds can also use the trees branches for shelter during the winter winds. Large quantities of trees make effective barriers on beaches to prevent soil erosion. Sunk into ponds, the trees will also make an excellent refuge and feeding area for fish.
