Our trees grow for an average of 7 years to 11 years of age before they are cut and become part of the Christmas Magic in your homes. (This fact is why pricing is variable. It is possible some years growers can have an over-abundance, or even a lack of a variety based on a variety’s shortage of planting stock from 5 to 10 years ago!)
If tagged below in red, we plan to have these Popular Christmas Tree varieties ready for 2020:
Douglas Fir – Non-sprayed, non-sheared natural trees. Description: One of the most popular varieties nation wide and it’s Oregon’s official tree. With dark blue-green 1 – 1 ½” long needles, this conical shaped tree has good needle retention and a nice fragrance.
Norway Spruce – Description: A beautiful shiny bluegreen tree with ½ – 1″ needles, with fragrance, an open form, and strong branches.
Noble Fir – Description: A deep green color with good shape, sturdy branches good for decorations and a great aroma – 1″ needles with good needle retention – this variety is often used for wreaths and garland.
Grand Fir – Description: Always a reliable favorite because they are the most fragrant tree. The needles lay flat and are a vibrant emerald green on top and boast a silvery light reflecting underside creating an extra sparkling display.
Nordmann Fir – Description: Symmetrically arranged strong branches perfectly hold large heavy ornaments. The short, dark green needles are soft and flattened on the twig, with a waxy cuticle giving the tree its shiny appearance and prevents drying and needle loss. Very little fragrance.
We constantly re-plant tree fields which take 7 to 11 years before they can be harvested.
None of our trees are sprayed – and we accept VISA & MasterCard. Free hot chocolate. Free wagon rides on weekends (weather permitting). Handsaws are provided – Labor is not provided in our U-Cut fields. Wear sturdy shoes/boots, gloves, and don’t forget a warm hat.
Then come inside and warm up at the Christmas Tree Warm-Up Shed or visit the horse barn.
