The Circle of Life
The trees in the foreground were planted in 2001, center trees in 2003, and the tiny trees in the backround in 2008.
With the help of many family members, we planted our 1st 9,000 seedings in the Spring of 2001, then planted another 7,000 2 years later. With a lot of TLC from the whole family, most survived. Trees that fell victim to dry weather, string trimmers, and deer were replanted each Spring. We were excited to have families cut the 1st trees for Christmas of 2008. Spring of 2008 we completed planting the final 10 acres with another 9,000 seedlings.
We are proud to do our part in reducing the carbon footprint & providing friendly habitat for the many furry & feathered critters who call Moose Apple Christmas Tree Farm "home".
In the 8 to 12 years it takes our trees to reach their optimum height, their branches are home to many species of birds. Even though your tree is shaken after you cut it to remove any dead needles and debris, don't be surprised to find an abandoned nest that managed to hang on during the process!
Now each tree that is harvested for the Christmas Season is replanted with a baby seedling the following Spring. This practice not only assures that generations to come will be able to carry on the tradition with their families, it continues to provide a safe haven for birds, bunnies & others!
Real Christmas Trees are by far the best choice. They are renewable, recyclable, and help preserve green space. Click here to learn more about how they benefit the environment!
