2010 Christmas Tree Planting Report

We finished up planting Christmas trees and spring fertilizer application, just in time for the forecasted rain showers. This is always a busy time for us as we are busy planting trees for another great crop of trees about 7-9 years down the road. We added 3,000 trees to the farm on around 3 acres of ground. We planted 3 varieties of fir, a few spruce, white pine and scotch pine. This year we had "help" from the next generation of Christmas tree producers, all 5 grandchildren. Their ages range from 5 years to 4 months. Keep checking back in as we will post some photos and more updates.
