About the Trees
Our trees are grown right here in New Hampshire. The trees are harvested within days of you coming to the farm. The average 6 to 7 foot Christmas tree will take 7 to 12 years of field growth to be ready for decorating in your home. While growing in the field these trees need lots of care including fertilization, weed and pest control and a proper shearing schedule. There is a lot of time and hard work that goes into growing Christmas trees.
Dark green needles; 1/2 to 1 inch long; good needle retention; nice scent. Fraser fir emerges as one of the best species in terms of needle retention and fragrance. Guest who purchase a Fraser will never go back to a Balsam in our experience
Short. flat, long lasting needles; forms a soft feathery appearance; nice, dark green color with silvery cast are fragrant tends to be the most recognize Christmas tree.
Real Christmas Trees are Environmentally Friendly
Christmas trees are renewable, recyclable natural product. Real Christmas Trees are actually grown as crops, just like corn or wheat, and raised on a farm. Once they are harvested, up to 3 seedlings are planted to replace harvested trees on most farms. Therefore, there are actually more and more trees every year, not less. On average Christmas Tree farmers planted 70 million new Christmas Trees on farms throughout North America each year. These trees would NOT have been planted if trees hadn’t been harvested the previous year. It is much better environmentally to use a natural, organic crop and be sure to recycle your tree after the holidays.
Taking care of your Tree
The average Christmas tree with proper care should last 6 weeks. Once you have decided on your tree our staff will make a fresh cut. We will trim to height you choose or take about one-fourth to one-half of an inch from the bottom base of the tree. It takes about 6 hours for the base to sap over making a seal which, in turn makes it harder for the tree to absorb water. We strongly recommend once you get your tree home place it outside in a five gallon pail of water overnight. You do not need to add any of those home remedies you hear about such as aspirin or seven up. The next best thing you can do for your tree to select a good tree stand that will hold a large amount of water. The average tree can consume up to a gallon of water per day. You should check the level of water in your tree stand daily this will help to maintain the freshness and aroma of your live Christmas tree this holiday season.
