The Tree Farm Experience

COVID-19 GUIDELINES, 
Tips for visiting the farm and caring for your fresh cut tree
By following a few simple guidelines, we can help keep each other safe while you pick out your Christmas tree this holiday season!
  • If you are displaying signs of illness or had contact with someone ill with COVID-19, please stay at home and arrange a later time to come to the farm to choose your tree.

  • We require customers and employees to wear a face mask covering.

  • Families/households may not feel the need to keep a six-foot distance from each other, but we do require practicing social distancing from others who are in your direct area.

  • In the past, dogs on leashes were always welcomed. We now ask that you leave them at home as they can easily cause unnecessary interaction among other customers. 

  • We encourage one family member at the baler while others proceed to their vehicle.

  • There is no evidence to date, that COVID-19 can be transmitted on plants or plant products.

Tree Farm Tips

  • Be sure to dress warmly and always wear boots.

 

  • Select a tree that suits your needs. Keep in mind the location in your home, your type of ornaments and the length of time you will keep your tree up.

 

  • In the “great outdoors” the sky is the ceiling; trees appear smaller than they actually are.​

About Christmas Tree Farms

  • Tree farms stabilize soil, protect water supplies and provide refuge for wildlife while creating scenic green belts.

 

  • Real Christmas trees absorb carbon dioxide and other gases to create fresh oxygen. One acre of Christmas trees produces the daily oxygen requirements for 18 people.

 

  • For every real Christmas tree harvested, an average of three seedlings are planted in its place.

Caring for Real Christmas Trees

  • The most important thing to remember is that real trees need water!
