Some people ask, “why should I cut a Fresh Christmas Tree?” The way we like to think about it is that it is much like a vegetable garden. You plant something and at some point it has to be harvested or it will go bad. The same is true for Christmas Trees, they are planted to be cut and harvested when they are 6 to 9 feet tall. What would happen if we did not cut and harvest the Christmas Trees? The Christmas Trees would grow too tall, begin to crowd one another, begin to die from the middle and disease could set in and cause problems throughout the entire Farm.
If we planted the trees further apart (like we have with the timber trees on our Farm) then they might grow to a larger height, but these Christmas Trees are a species designed to grow to the magic 7 to 10 foot Christmas tree height and not much taller.
So it’s Okay to cut your Fresh Christmas Tree, it was planted to be cut and enjoyed in your home during Christmas. You also support your local Christmas Tree Farmer who has spent the last 7 to 9 years growing and caring for your Christmas Trees.
Send your questions, we’d be happy to answer them! We hope to see you soon at the Sunny Day Tree Farm!
