Time to Harvest Christmas Trees

Nov 19, 2010

This weekend we start harvesting trees for our wholesale customers who are setting up their tree lots early next week, preparing for the busy Thanksgiving weekend when the public start buying trees to take home.  So, the crew is assembled, the equipment is ready, the exact number and sizes of trees ordered are tagged....let the cutting, dragging out, shaking, baling, counting and loading begin.

 
Last year it was so wet and muddy, we had trouble keeping the trees clean. This year it is so dry and dusty, we may need dust masks while shaking the trees.  What a difference a year makes!
 
Our choose and cut customers have been calling about tagging a tree early.  We aren't tagging this year and will let them start coming out on Friday, Saturday and Sunday after Thanksgiving to walk the fields and choose and cut their family tree.
 
Thanks for your time!
