Life of a Christmas tree--- Mr. Dupras and Mike standing with new trees about to be planted.
Mike (General Manager) planting a transplant in the field. Wherever we cut down a tree that was sold, we plant a new tree in its spot in late winter/early spring.

The tree is planted! With luck, rain, and some T.L.C., this tree will be full-sized in 8-10 years.
Charles (Production Manger) mows the field to keep the natural grass groundcover out of the Christmas trees.

Sawing down the Christmas tree. We kneel on plastic bags so we don't get our knees dirty. We offer that for all family cuts, so the little ones don't get covered in dirt.
Celebrating after the tree is cut down.
For your convenience, we put a plastic newspaper bag on the stump of your tree to keep you, your kids, your car, and your house sap-free!
The tree is then baled. Baling reduces the width of your tree, enabling easier transport and set-up.
