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!

We have very  limited parking available at both our roadside lot and at the U-cut farm.  With the saturated soil conditions that we are experiencing this weekend (Dec. 6 &7),  we need to keep all vehicles on the gravel parking areas to avoid  damage to the property and to your vehicles.  Consequently, at times we may need to limit vehicle access.  If you see a sign reading “Parking Lot – Full” at the entrance to the farm, please try again later.

Feel free to call us at 740-395-4472, to see if we have space.

Perhaps you could visit Poplar Row Nursery and load up on honey, wreaths, poinsettias, and amaryllis flowers for the Holidays.  Poplar Row is operated by Buckeye Community Services and  is located just 1.5 miles to our south on SR 93.
Thanks!

wreathWe are excited to announce that we will be working with Buckeye Community Services on wreaths for the 2014 Christmas Season.  Wreaths are being assembled by their program employees with developmental disabilities.  We should have them available soon at multiple locations including our lot.   We’ll keep you posted!

IMG_0328We will open on Black Friday, November 28th at Noon!

If you’ve driven by the lot and wondered why we don’t have any trees out yet,  don’t worry!  We are waiting until Friday morning to be sure that they are as freshly cut as possible.

Hope to see you soon!

Canaan Fir Destined for Kuwait

Canaan Fir Destined for Kuwait

Each year the Ohio Christmas Tree  Association (OCTA) organizes Operation Evergreen to send live Christmas Trees to military personnel serving overseas. http://ohiochristmastree.org/octa-giving-back/

This is the second year that students at Sts. Peter and Paul School in Wellston raised funds to ship one of the trees to Kuwait, made homemade ornaments and cards, and selected trees to be sent to the troops.

These three trees were cut this evening and made the first leg of their long journey to Kuwait.  They will be inspected and packaged (along with the decorations) in Reynoldsburg tomorrow.

If your organization is interested in helping to raise funding for shipping ($160 per tree) or would like to supply decorations for a tree next year,  feel free to contact us.
