Christmas Trees

UPDATE

We will be open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for Cut Your Own Christmas Trees December 9 to December 11. Hours are 9am to 5pm.

All cut your own trees are priced at $55.95 plus tax, the same price as last year.

There is a very good selection of trees, some up to 12 ft., because we were not open last weekend.

The Covered Bridge Farm is a family owned and operated cut your own Christmas tree farm growing trees on about 20 acres. We have been selling trees from this farm for the past 25 years. 

We grow Fir and Spruce trees for cutting.  Every tree is sheared (shaped) every summer to provide a dense and narrow tapered tree. There are at least six varieties of Balsam Fir, some up to 12 ft;  three varieties of Spruce, up to 13 ft; and several varieties of hybrid Fraser Fir crosses, including Canaan Fir; up to 11 ft.  

This will be our Second year to offer full sized Meyer Spruce trees, up to 9 feet.  We used one the past 2 years and can confirm that this is one tough tree.  Its stiff branches will hold heavier ornaments and the needle retention, we feel, exceeds anything on the market.

The following pictures show a Norway Spruce before and after it is sheared.  Some of our Christmas tree will put on 3 to 4 feet of growth in the summer and we shear or shape these trees back to a new growth height of 8 to 12 inches.

After

We are a cut your own tree farm and have no wholesale or pre-cut "premium" trees.  Therefore, our tree field has the higher quality trees remaining in the field for the customer to cut.
 
This last growing season has given us a surplus of rain so the trees are well hydrated.

Hand  saws are available to borrow.  We provide 400# poly twine to help secure your tree on your vehicle. We will clean you tree with a Toro blower or Shakee shaker to remove any dead needles and live squirrels.
 
 
 
 
Tree bailing (wrapping) with #2 recyclable green and red soft plastic netting 
is available for $2.00.
 
 
 
Free hot apple cider, cookies, and candy canes are in the gift shop where you can come in to warm up when you pay.

We make and decorate our own wreaths and swags using Fraser Fir boughs cut from our other farm.  There are decorated evergreen porch pots, evergreen tops, birch trunks/stems, and dogwood for your outdoor planter arrangements. 

Our gift shop has a good selection of ornaments, seasonal decorations, and food items, including Waletzko maple syrup and Twin Pine Farm flavored honey and vinegar. 
 
 
We have the Arctic Ice Lantern molds.  These reusable molds let you freeze water into decorative luminaries to brighten your holiday displays.  For more information, visit the manufacturer's web site by clicking here.

And using LED lights and a few extra boughs from your tree, you can really create some cool looking ice lanterns.  We made this one 11/18/14.



We also sell the popular Santa's Magic Water Spout.  It is a device to make watering your tree in the stand easier.
 
 
We also have for sale the Firebuggz - a family fun way to roast marshmallows or hot dogs. It is like using a jig fishing pole over a camp fire.

Part of our sustainability farming practices include chipping evergreen boughs to use as an "acid" mulch for our blueberry field.
