As reported last year, we have experienced two open winters which has resulted in losses, particularly the true firs used primarily in the culture of Christmas trees. We have experimented with different mulches and have found a promising fix to the problem of frost heaving. In fact, our 2year old beds have some of the best looking stock we have seen.  Unfortunately for our Christmas tree customers, it takes a minimum of 3 years to grow a field ready seedling, so one more year will be needed before our saleable numbers of firs will be at good levels again.  

Balsam, Fraser, Canaan, and Concolor fir will not be available this year in standalone sales.  We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused our growers.
