  • No need to bring a saw, we provide them to you free of charge.
  • We have helpful staff and maps and will direct you to the section of the farm that has the exact type of tree you are looking for
  • Though we cover 200 acres you will have no trouble seeing your way home - there is no fear of getting lost.
  • If you don't want to cut your own, we have a great precut selection for you
  • If you need any assistance we are there to help you load, shake, tie down
  • Free shaking - this is a quick process that shakes the loose needles off of the tree so they stay on the farm and not on your floor.

Quick Tree Facts

There are approximately 25-30 million Real Christmas Trees sold in the U.S. every year. There are close to half a billion Real Christmas Trees currently growing on Christmas Tree farms in the U.S. alone, all planted by farmers.

North American Real Christmas Trees are grown in all 50 states and Canada. Eighty percent (80%) of artificial trees worldwide are manufactured in China, according to the U.S. Commerce Department.

Real Trees are a renewable, recyclable resource. Artificial trees contain non-biodegradable plastics and possible metal toxins such as lead.

There are more than 4,000 Christmas Tree recycling programs throughout the United States.

For every Real Christmas Tree harvested, up to 3 seedlings are planted in its place the following spring.

There are about 500,000 acres in production for growing Christmas Trees in the U.S.; much of it preserving green space.

There are about 21,000 Christmas Tree growers in the U.S., and over 100,000 people employed full or part-time in the industry.

It can take as many as 15 years to grow a tree of typical height (6 - 7 feet) or as little as 4 years, but the average growing time is 7 years.
