Trees & Green Decor
specializing in BIG trees!
Choosing a real Christmas tree is a fun outing for the whole family and easy to do. Here are a few simple steps for selecting the perfect tree.
1. Determine whether you would like to purchase a fresh, pre-cut tree or join us on a cut-your-own tree adventure!
2. Size & Shape: Consider the area in your home where you plan to place the tree and select a tree that will best fit that area.
3. Do a freshness test: As a normal part of the growing process, every year trees grow new needles. Gently grasp a branch between your thumb and forefinger and pull it toward you. If the tree is fresh, very few needles should come off. It is natural for brown needles to fall from the tree. As a free service, we shake as many of the brown needles from your tree as possible then help protect your tree by baling it for the ride home. The baling process does loosen some of the green needles, which may fall when the tree is at home. We have lovingly cared for your tree since it was a seedling and hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
4. Landscape Trees Also Available: Potted and balled/burlapped Christmas trees are always available at grower-direct prices. Decorate a gorgeous live Blue Spruce for Christmas, then plant it in your yard and watch it grow while savoring the wonderful memories of Christmases past.
5. Wreaths, swags, boughs, centerpieces, garlands, ropes, and other designs - ready-to-buy or custom made - are available during the holidays. Please visit this page for examples of our freshly made designs and to inquire about special orders.
Cutting Your Own Christmas Tree
1. Borrow a saw from a salesperson.
2. Before you cut a tree, make sure it has not been pre-tagged. Fluorescent orange ribbon and/or nametag means the tree was pre-tagged by a family already. THIS TREE BELONGS TO ANOTHER FAMILY.
3. Present your tree with plastic ribbon (this ribbon indicates the price of your tree) still attached to the salesperson in the cut tree area of the Barn. He or she will write a sales slip.
4. The wagons will be operating on weekends, weather permitting. Please be careful. Mud will not wash off your tree so please carry it when necessary.
5. All customers must be out of the fields before dusk/dark, i.e. 5pm. Please arrive by 4:30pm to cut-your-own tree.
6. Baling trees with twine may loosen some needles; this is normal, and is no reason for concern when setting up your tree.
