Christmas Trees

SUSTAINABLY GROWN CHRISTMAS TREES CUT TO ORDER

 

We have about 8 acres of marginal land on which Christmas trees have proven to be a viable and earth-conscious choice.  Going against industry standards,  we grow trees without the use of herbicides (which stop the growth of weeds, but pollute the soil and water), pesticides or artificial colors.  The results have been attractive, natural-looking, fresh- cut trees free of pesticides, sprays or colors.  Although a lot more intensive manual labor has been used to grow them, we keep them affordable at $20 - 125  a tree.

If you are planning to give a tree as a gift to a teacher, a limited-income family, or community worker, you can have them contact us to come and pick one out in your price-range. We discount gift trees. If you know of a family who can’t afford a tree, we’ll have a limited number of trees we can donate anonymously.

We'll bring trees down to Takoma Park on Thursdays until Christmas. We also come Saturday mornings to the Adams Morgan Farm Market (8:00am – 1:00pm) until December 24th. Please pay by check.

Please mark your pick up date on your calendar. Bring bungee cord and rope. Most trees fit in cars!

If you’d like to ride up to the farm and pick a tree, Michael likes the company.

The trees are fresh cut for you, so if you don’t pick it up, it will have been cut for naught.

There’s nothing sadder this time of year then seeing a lone tree abandoned. We feel their pain!

Happy Holidays 2016
