The customers coming out today tell us we still have many nice trees so we are going to remain open on Sunday Dec 15.

We have been very busy so far, so the selection is definitely dropping.
We no longer have any 8' trees that would qualify for the cover of
"Better Homes and Gardens". The best gauge of the current quality is
that very few people are leaving without trees and that many people
comment on the good selection still available. Best selection is with
the Colorado blue spruce, Norway spruce, and white pine.

As of Dec 1, the Town of Pelham closes the road just past our house.
This means that you can't get to our house from the west along Orchard
Hill Road. If you are following your GPS and it tells you to turn onto
Luffman Drive - DO NOT DO IT. Follow Sulphur Springs Road and turn
right at each stop sign until you get to our sign. Set your GPS to go
to 2347 Hollow Road in Thorold and follow our sign from there. Good
luck. (It's almost like we are "out in the country")
We had a very busy season so far. The selection is dropping faster than it normally does. The following gives a quick update.
AUSTRIAN PINE -Sold out. We will not be replanting.
BALSAM FIR -We did not have very many large fir to start with. (The
deer destroy most of the unprotected fir) We have opened up an area
that for years has been protected by an electric fence. There are lots
in that area but they are not over 6-1/2 feet and are a more open
natural look (as opposed to the thick shaped look we usually aim at)
This natural appearance is becoming quite popular with some customers.
don't need a tall tree and prefer a tree that has room to place
decorations, you may find something there.
White Pine, Norway Spruce, and Colorado Blue Spruce - We still have a good selection.

The first weekend went very well dispite the cold winds. Possibly our
busiest opening weekend yet. Lots of snow in the fields. The
roads are in good shape right now. Yesterday we installed our new
roadside sign. We are quite pleased with it and the message it carries.
(I hope this entices you to take the time to read it)
Looking forward to seeing our returning and our new customers.
DECORATING IDEA FOR 2013.
Many people like to use white birch branches in decorations. In 2013 as
a trial we will offer birch wood ("cut it yourself" of course) at
$20.00 for all that one person can reasonably carry.
Many customers ask if we have
boughs for sale. We do not but some people are buying as large a tree
as they can and cutting it up for boughs. One tree could supply two
or three families. That would likely be cheaper than buying pre-cut
boughs and they would be fresher.
We do not accept credit or debit cards. Cash only. Sorry
