Snow on the Farm?

Snow on the Sunny Day Tree Farm?  Hey, the weather guys and gals called for potential snow at 1,000 feet and yes, you guessed it, the Farm is between 500 and 1,000 feet!  Good idea to check the weather before you come up to the Farm to be prepared for any kind of weather.  On… Continue Reading

What we Love

We Love the fact that so many families come to our U-cut Christmas Tree Farm and make the Sunny Day Tree Farm part of their Holiday experience.  Families come and visit to experience a “family farm” where we don’t push the commercialism of Christmas.  We focus on making the entire experience a relaxed, fun event for the kids… Continue Reading

Planting Christmas Trees

When do we plant Christmas Trees?  We always plant in the late Fall to Winter, anytime between November and February.  This year we are working hard to get the seedlings in the ground in November, as soon as the nursery has them ready to go.  We’ll be planting a variety of Noble Firs, Cedars and… Continue Reading

Wreaths, Wreaths, Wreaths!

It’s Wreath gathering time!  The Farm activity is centered around the gathering of wreath material for Mrs. Santa Su to begin her wreath making.  A key to a good wreath is the freshness of the wreath material (limbs, berries, cones and assorted greenery).  All of the fresh material is cut just prior to Mrs. Santa… Continue Reading

Christmas Tree Tagging!

Fresh Christmas Trees?

Well, we saw it.  Cut Christmas Trees on a truck, heading down the freeway yesterday!  How fresh are those trees when they reach your home?  Not very.  The freshest Christmas Trees are those you cut yourself and put in water right away.  A fresh Christmas Tree looks better, smells better and is safer for your home… Continue Reading

Christmas Tree Care

We want you to enjoy your Sunny Day Tree Farm Christmas Tree for as long as possible.  The Pacific Northwest Christmas Tree Association recommends that you place your tree away from heat sources when you take it home.  It’s a good idea to keep it away from heating vents, fireplaces, wood stoves, television sets or… Continue Reading

November is Here!

November has arrived and it’s a busy time on the Sunny Day Tree Farm, the U-Cut Christmas Tree Farm of choice in Sherwood, Oregon.  Lots to do in preparation of opening day on November, 27th, the day after Thanksgiving.  We’re busy gathering wreath materials and staging all the wreaths that will adorn the homes of… Continue Reading

Natural Nobles

What do we mean by “Natural Nobles”?  We don’t spray chemicals (pesticides or herbicides) on our U-Cut Christmas Trees as a farming practice.  This year was the first year we had to apply pesticides to our Grand Fir and selected Noble Fir trees.  Due to the extreme weather (a cold January and overly hot August)… Continue Reading
