  • We are working to provide touchless payment with credit cards or will sanitize the credit card device between customers
  • When paying by cash please bring the correct amount $70.00 with you to minimize the need for change

2020 Pricing

2 Comments

To simplify things we will only be selling Canaan Fir from our farm this year.

We have a good selection of trees from 6 to 9 feet in height.

Price per tree is $70 for any sized tree

 

We will offer these options:

 

   1. You can either choose and cut your own tree (we’ve got the sanitized saws; you bring the muscle)

   2. We will keep a very small inventory of fresh cut trees from our farm near the entrance

   3. We will cut the tree of your choice for you

Feel free to contact us by email (apsleytrees@roadrunner.com) or phone (740-288-4572) if you have questions.

If last weekend is any indicator of this coming weekend , we expect to be very busy on Saturday and Sunday (December 5th and 6th).  In order to be safe and to allow things to flow more quickly, we will only allow a limited number of vehicles in at any given time.

If the driveway is blocked with vehicles or Caution Tape,  please drive by and come back when there is an opening.  Please do not stop or park on State Route 93 or along the right of way.  Although the speed limit is only 45 MPH on this stretch of SR 93, many people drive much faster.   We are trying to gain access to some additional parking nearby and will let you know if that works out.

Poplar Row Nursery will be open on Saturday from 1 to 4 PM.  They have wreaths and poinsettias.  They are only about 1.5 miles south of us on State Route 93.  So if we’re busy consider paying them a visit while you wait. 

We appreciate your business, and thank you in advance for your patience! Merry Christmas, and Please be Safe!

Caring for your fresh cut tree

Leave a comment

A few pointers to make sure that your tree stays green and safe through out the Christmas season:

  1. Store  your tree in a cool place if you can’t put it up right away.
  2. Cut a thin slice (1/2 inch or so) from the bottom of the trunk immediately before placing it in water.
  3. Place tree in stand and fill with water as quickly as possible.
  4. Do not  place tree near a heat source.  Block registers close to tree if possible.
  5. Monitor water level at least once per day.  Do not allow the tree to run out of water!
  6. Turn off tree lights when you’re not in the room enjoying the tree!
  7. Let me know if you have problems!
  8. Most importantly!  Enjoy!
