FRESH CUT CHRISTMAS TREES
ABOUT OUR TREES
Our real Christmas trees range in size from 2-to-15 feet, in several different densities: ranging from natural “light density” to “tiered/layered” medium density to “full bodied” heavy density.
We're full-service: we will carry, shake, trim, wrap, and load your tree for you at no charge.
Have questions about selecting the tree that's right for you? Just ask. We're happy to help!
HOW WE SOURCE OUR TREES
Come visit our Christmas tree lot in Bellevue, WA for fresh cut Christmas trees grown by family farmers in the Pacific Northwest. We hand-select all of the trees we sell to ensure quality and freshness. Choosing a Christmas tree from us ensures that you're getting the best possible tree from a trusted source.
This attention to detail and commitment to source only from local family farms is what sets our trees apart from the big box stores and other corporate-owned retailers.
Every summer, we drive out to our partners' farms to select and tag the best-looking Noble, Grand, and Nordmann firs we can find. In mid-November, we drive back to pick the trees up, then set them up at our tree lot. We'll normally make a few return trips to pick up more newly cut trees in early December to ensure a fresh supply. We know that Christmas trees are an investment and want to make sure that you love your tree.
WHY CHOOSE FRESH?
Unlike mass produced plastic or metal trees, real Christmas trees are beneficial to the environment. As grow, they absorb carbon dioxide, also emitting fresh oxygen into the atmosphere while stabilizing the soil. And unlike artificial trees, real Christmas trees are a renewable resource: each spring, farmers replace harvested trees with seedlings, and recycled trees can be turned into mulch. This is something artificial trees just can't do.
When you purchase a fresh cut tree, you're saying "yes" to natural renewable resources and "no" to more plastic and metal in landfills.
KEEP YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE LOOKING FRESH
PREPARE YOUR TREE
Once at home, place your freshly cut Christmas tree in water as soon as possible.
Make a fresh cut that removes at least a half-inch thick disk of wood from the base of the trunk before putting the tree in the stand. The fresh cut will allow your tree to uptake water more efficiently. Drilling a hole does not increase water uptake.
USE THE RIGHT TREE STAND
Use a stand with enough holding capacity for your tree. Stands should provide one quart of water per inch of stem diameter.
Use a stand that fits the diameter of the trunk. Avoid whittling the sides of the trunk down to fit a stand. The outer layers of wood are the most efficient in taking up water and shouldn't be removed. Use a traditional reservoir-type stand and keep it full.
KEEP IT WATERED
When a Christmas tree is cut, more than half its weight is water. Be sure not to let the water reduce to below the base of the tree.
