We want you to have the best experience possible while out on our farm and at home during the holidays.
Whether you’re cutting your own or grabbing one off of our lot, there are a few things we’d like to share to help planning your hunt.
Before you arrive, plan where your tree will live for the next weeks! You’re going to have a guest in your home that requires a bit of planning (but less than the in-laws visiting) .
- Pine trees prefer to be tucked away from heat sources and drafty windows.
- Make sure you can access the base to water it. Tree skirts are gorgeous but can also be prohibitive to watering, which your tree will need at least once a day.
- Your eyes may deceive you,”Oh, I think we have 8 foot ceilings. This tree doesn’t look THAT tall or wide!” You can make them shorter but it’s a lot of work. You’re stuck with the width unless you’re willing to butcher the tree and probably get an earful.
- Buy a tree bag. We sell them. You’ll thank me later.
- Bring the right vehicle. Wear the right shoes. We want you to be prepared. We will be laughing at you as we watch you attempt to tie a 7 foot tree to a Fiat. It really does happen multiple times a season.
- Our wagons are for trees only in 2020. Pine trees don’t have to distance themselves socially. There just wasn’t a way to transport everyone safely. Family is everything to us. We wanted to be as inclusive as possible but understand that this means a lot of our littles and elders can’t join this year. If you’re cutting your own, you’ll be walking into the fields and bringing your tree to our wagon path where you’ll walk back and meet it.
