“We have beautiful fresh Frasers Firs coming in this weekend, but due to an overwhelming, blessed response from our customers, our current inventory of Choose & Cut trees is very limited. This includes Leyland Cypress, Murray Cypress and Carolina Sapphire trees. The Frasers will be cut this week and delivered on Saturday. We welcome you to come out and enjoy the day with hot chocolate, s’mores and boiled peanuts and take some great family pictures. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. As we are sure you can appreciate, it is very difficult to predict just how many trees you may sell 5 years in advance. Thank you and God Bless!”
The Christmas Trees we grow benefit the environment.
Our trees are busy helping the environment long before you take them home for the holidays.
Real Christmas trees are a benefit to the environment from the time they are planted until after the holiday season when they can be recycled.
While growing, real Christmas trees support life by absorbing carbon dioxide and other gases and emitting fresh oxygen. This helps prevent the earth-warming greenhouse effect.
Every acre of Christmas trees grown produces the daily oxygen requirement for 18 people. In the United States there are approximately 1 million acres of growing Christmas trees; that means that 18 million people a day are supplied with oxygen thanks to Christmas trees.
The farms that grow Christmas trees stabilize soil, protect water supplies, and provide refuge for wildlife while creating scenic green belts. Often, Christmas trees are grown on soil that is marginal for other crops.
After Christmas, real Christmas trees are often recycled and have many uses.
Christmas trees are biodegradable — the trunk and branches can be used as mulch for gardens, parks or in animal stalls. The mulch provides a protective barrier for the roots of other plants and vegetation while preventing weeds from growing. The mulch then decomposes, providing the nutrients plants need to thrive.
Recycling programs are a fast-growing trend in communities throughout the nation. Ask a tree farmer when you’re here.
Some communities use Christmas trees to make effective sand and soil erosion barriers, especially at beaches and on river beds. Sunk into private fish ponds trees make excellent refuge and feeding areas for fish.
Before recycling, Christmas trees can be used to make bird feeders, adding color and excitement to the winter garden. Utilize orange slices, suet, and seed to attract the birds. They will come for the food and stay for the shelter in the branches.
