We wait to harvest our 12 foot Christmas trees until very late in November. We use a tree shaker to ensure that all old needles and weeds have been removed so that you will have a fresh Christmas tree with no debris from the fields. We cut the trees along the bottom and remove branches that are near the bottom so that the customer will be able to put the tree in a stand.
