When your looking up at a tree it is often hard to tell the difference between a Fraser Fir and a Balsam Fir.  So we now have 14 fifty pound bundles of Fraser Fir greens more than our orders.  If you want to make some wreaths, garland, or other holiday decorations, here is your chance.  Our wholesale customers report that they can make 5 or 6 fancy wreaths from a 50 pound bundle and have some pieces left over.  The price is $18.50 each bundle.  Call or email us soon!

Big Tree Nov 2015 WebWe have good selection of 10' to nearly 20' trees and in a variety of widths. If you have a really big room (with large exterior entrance doors) or an outdoor display and you want a large tree, you need to contact us ahead of time. We need the advance warning so that we are not trying to do this a busy time of the day when we need to help many customers over a short time period. The tree pictured is nearly 20 feet tall but we have many smaller ones.  

As you might guess it takes more workers and more time to cut, carry and package a tree of this size.   You don't transport it home on the roof of a sub-compact car.  You will need a large truck body or a trailer nearly as long as the tree.  You should also consider how you are going to secure it in the truck or trailer.  Rope or strong rachet straps are required.  Big trees need more than bailer twine.  Another concern is how you are going to get the tree safely out of the truck or trailer and upright at your location.  What kind of stand will hold a tree butt of this size?  We sell stands that will accomodate trees up to 12 feet or a bit more but a tree with a large diameter trunk will need a special stand or support.  If you choose a 10 to 12' tree, it is all manageble with some advance planning.  Each foot you add on to the height (and width) of the tree usually increases the amount of planning and resources required significantly.  

It might sound like we are trying to discourage you from getting a large tree over 12 feet.  We are not!  We just want to be sure you will be happy with your selection.  

 

 

New Board 2If you have been to our farm before, you remember the small board suspended by two grade stakes near the big Blue Spruce. This board had a small piece of a branch from each specie of tree we grow with its name above. It was too small to be very helpful and it was not high enough for some people to see it well. This year we are making a bigger board, higher up, with more information. As of November 7 here was our progress. We have dug the holes, placed the cement and built the lower assembly of the board. We are using as much of the lumber milled from the large Colorado Blue Spruce (See the stump in front of the Information board frame) as we can. More progress will be reported as it happens. The purpose of the board is to have information for customers as they get ready to mount their expedition to find the perfect Christmas tree.

We still have 2 prime days for a bake sale available at our Christmas Barn. Sunday December 4 and Sunday December 11 are still available and have been high volume days in the past.

A little over a week ago we promised that "By mid November this website will be updated to the latest version of Joomla and be responsive to all types of devices including large monitors, laptops, and all sorts of smaller mobile devices such as smart phones."  On November 8, 2016 we made that promise come true, on budget, ahead of time!  Please wander through the many articles and send us a message, using the "Contact us" feature, if you like it or have suggestions.  Thank you.

On or about 1972 my father planted a small Colorado Blue Spruce on our lawn. Just like puppies and kittens little trees become big trees. It became so big we had to trim it severely to avoid problems with electrical and telephone lines. It really didn't look very good trimmed and the wires were still at risk. So we cut it down this early October and took the log to neighbor's mill and we now have almost enough lumber to build a covered sign board for customers to learn things about trees when they arrive to buy the perfect tree. We have additional lumber cut here on the farm to finish the project before Thanksgiving if the weather and the work load permit. We have also planted a new small tree further away from the wires but not too close to the road.

As you may know we have been primarily Choose & Cut for the last few years but as our inventory grows we have to avoid becoming overwhelmed with too many trees. This year we will have at least 100, mostly Balsam Fir, trees available for wholesale prices. We have some fields that only have a few nice trees left and we would like to clear the fields and plant again. Minimum order 25 trees. They vary in size from 6 feet to 12 feet. We prefer that you come and chose the trees yourself. Each order should have some of the larger trees. Please contact us soon!  Also our wholesale prices for larger trees is included below.
