Our Christmas season starts the day after Thanksgiving, on November 28th, 2019. We make wreaths, roping, sprays, swags and have trees for sale. We have grown Fraser Fir trees on leased fields along the Connecticut River since 1976, but we still have to buy some in from a local grower to meet the demand. Because Lee is our only ‘wreath maker’, some high quality wreaths are also bought in. The products we make are from our own Fraser fir brush, so they last a long time. Our season ends when we sell out, usually within three weeks.
After planting more Fraser Fir in the spring of 2018, our acreage dedicated to growing Christmas trees is at capacity. Time and the unusually rich soil will produce excellent quality trees for years to come. We will continue to plant trees (ornamentals) each year to help supply our nursery and landscaping demands as well. With two tree spades now, digging is much easier and less expensive.
