DO I NEED A RESERVATION TO CUT A TREE THIS YEAR DUE TO COVID?
You do not need a reservation or appointment time! We will be very busy on the weekends so if you are looking for a quieter time at the farm we recommend coming when we are open on Thursdays and Fridays, 9:00am to 4:00pm. You can read more about our COVID protocols on our 2020 Updates Page.
ARE YOU OPEN FOR TAGGING FALL 2020?
Unfortunately, no. Due to high demand for trees and staffing limitations we have not had tagging since 2013. To keep things fair we will need to take down any decorations found on trees around the farm for the upcoming season.
DO YOU HAVE 10+ FOOT TALL TREES?
Our inventory is now primarily 5 feet and under. If you are looking for a taller tree and you have the time and energy to hunt you may find one, but we can't guarantee anything.
HOW MUCH ARE YOUR TREES?
All of our trees are $65. We take checks or cash.
CAN I BRING MY DOG?
Yes! Leashed dogs are welcome at the farm. Please clean up after them.
WHEN WILL YOU OPEN?
A: We open our cut-your-own tree season on Friday, November 27th, 2020 and will be open from 9am to 4pm Thursday-Sunday thereafter. ***SEE 2020 UPDATE PAGE***
WHAT'S YOUR SELECTION OF TREES LIKE THIS YEAR? WHERE SHOULD I GO FOR THE BEST TREE?
We have a great selection of 4-5 foot balsam firs, fraser firs, concolor firs, and white spruces. We can't point you in a certain direction, because all of our fields are interplanted so you will find trees of all shapes, sizes, and varieties in every direction.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY TREE?
Since your tree is fresh cut it will last a long time. But, like a large bouquet of flowers it needs plenty of water daily as well as one package of tree preservative which we will give you. The preservative is a gel-like substance that keeps the tree moist between waterings- just be sure to keep it out of reach of kids and pets. See Our Trees page for more information.
WHAT TYPE OF TREE LASTS THE LONGEST?
Many people keep their tree up for over a month. Very warm homes, wood stoves or direct heat will shorten the life of your tree. Fir trees are shown to be better in those circumstances but spruce trees last a medium-long time with proper care since it is fresh cut.
WHAT TYPE OF TREE SMELLS THE BEST?
Smell is a personal preference. Different tree varieties have different smells, so crumple a few needles and take a whiff. The smell comes from the pitch which is most abundant under the water in the stand. To get your tree to smell more, take a pair of scissors and cut 1" pieces off the inner branches.
WHAT ELSE DO YOU SELL?
We have 24" & 36" mixed greens decorated wreaths, 12" specialty wreaths with mixed greens and fresh ornamental plant materials. These wreaths come with a variety of bows, all others have red velvet bows, but any can be switched out if you ask an employee. We also have kissing balls as well as mixed greens mailbox covers.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
The kids, the dog, rope for tying down your tree (we provide baling twine for normal size trees), and a camera. We provide saws (no power saws please), sleds or the haywagon for tree retrieval, netting for normal size trees.
