FRASER FIR have sturdy branches and a bluish cast. They retain their needles a bit longer than Balsams, but they lack the spicy evergreen scent of Balsams.
Our Frasers come from Canada and Vermont.
7-8 foot premium Fraser $160 (Every tree is priced individually)
Frasers are in short supply this year and so Prices are up.
One of our Balsams in front of a favorite Harlem watering hole. We have Balsams up to 12 feet on location.
$10 Charlie Brown Balsams
BALSAM FIR are close to our hearts. They are the trad-itional Christmas tree of the North East for good reason. They have soft dark green needles (often with a bluish under side) on sturdy yet flexible branches that hold their needles well. Their most endear-ing quality is the spicy ever-green scent that says, "Christ-mas" .
We specialize in narrow profile trees with an old Victorian look. All sizes.
This 18 foot "Peace Tree" is at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the largest cathedral in the world. It is located at Amsterdam and 111th St. in Manhattan. We are so proud to have one of our trees in this spectacular building. We have Balsams up to 20 feet, Frasers up to 14 feet and Douglas Firs up to 12 ft. If you need a tree over 11 feet and Call us in Vermont before the season 802-888-9280 or call me during the season at 917-575-1944
Before you take your tree home, we bale it in netting so its easier to carry and give the trunk a fresh cut so the tree can take up water.
All trees, just like cut flowers, last if there is water in their stands and die if there is not.
We have sold tens of thousands of trees over our 44 years in Manhattan. Now our grandchildren sell trees to the grandchildren of our original customer.
Every evening, when he's done with his regular work, Santa comes by to give us a hand
111th and Broadway
A Douglas Fir in the field.
White pine in the snow
White Pine are rare as Christmas trees. I'll bet there are less than 300 of them in Manhattan, maybe the whole city. These trees are lacy with long soft needles, but branches can not support much weight. Decorated them with a light touch, (tiny lights of one color and maybe a very few well chosen ornaments). They are striking.
Not all of our trees are high end Premiums. We also have BARGAIN TREES than are less dense, but still shapely and pretty. We have plenty of trees for $60 and less. We also have 7 - 10 ft , lightly sheared, narrow "Victorian" Balsams 7 to 9 feet tall that start for around $120. These are uniquely beautiful trees.
A couple of Doug Firs in the back and a 3 to 4 foot Fraser.
$10-$15 CHARLIE BROWNS
These BARGAIN TREES are not easy to find and we spend a good part of our summers scouting them out. Very few tree lots in the city have anything like them.
DELIVERY ALWAYS AVAILABLE , BIG TREES OR SMALL
