A shaken tree is a cleaner tree that will provide a better consumer experience. Tree shaking will remove dust from the field, old needles, and any bugs that might be making a home in the tree. Many of the needles that shake out of a fresh Fraser fir will be old needles that dropped in the fall and lodged in branch joints. If a tree has a good hold on its needles, there is nothing like a tree shaker to prove it.

Our trees are professionally baled (wrapped) before you leave our lot. Using twine each tree is wrapped tight to make easier to move into door frames and insert into your tree stand.

With proper care, you can maintain the quality of tree throughout the Christmas season. Below are helpful hints and tips to extend the life of your Christmas tree:

Make a fresh cut
We remove at least a ½ thick disk of wood from the base of the trunk. 
The cut should be perpendicular to the trunk – not cut at an angle.

Place the tree in water as soon as possible 
When you cut your tree at the farm, over half its weight is water.
Don’t bruise the cut surface or get it dirty.

Use a large enough tree stand for your tree
Do not ‘whittle’ down the sides of the tree to fit the stand.  The outer layers of the tree are the most efficient in taking up water and shouldn’t be removed.

Keep your cut tree away from sources of heat
This includes fireplaces, heaters, heat vents, and direct sunlight.

Check the water level each day
Be sure that the water level does not go below the base of the tree.
