October at the Christmas Tree Farm

We spray our trees in October for aphids. This is to eliminate the chance that you would bring them into your house. These aphids are harmless to humans, but could make a mess in your home. By the time our visitors cut their tree in November, rains dissipate the chemicals so that the trees are safe from any residual chemicals.

In October we cleanup our fields by mowing between the rows of trees. This is to make it easier for our visitors to stroll through the trees. It also helps our trees to grow better, without interference from weeds and grasses. There is also less competition for the fertilizers that we put out in the spring. We want to grow great trees, not great weeds.

The history of our farm goes back 150 years. This picture of the old chimney was once the only heat source and cooking spot for the original log home here. The log home has been gone well before Tom Sawyer owned the farm. Back then, these pioneers shared this part of the country with the Cherokee Indians. The stream that runs through our farm was the only water source for the original pioneers that
settled here. The stream starts here at our farm ( the headwaters) , and eventually makes its way through many states and ultimately flows into the Great Mississippi river, and out into the Gulf of Mexico.




No Smoking Please!

We have received many calls inquiring about the smoke and haze conditions from fires in neighboring counties. The sky is clear of smoke today!

nosmokingBecause of increased fire risk, the N.C. Forest Service has issued a burn ban in all of Western North Carolina. Due to the this, we ask that you please DO NOT smoke on property unless in a designated smoking area which will be clearly marked.
