7isiting a Christmas tree farm and buying a live tree grown in New Jersey can be a memorable holiday experience for the entire family?
The listing of Christmas tree farms in NJ has been updated in time for the 2016 Christmas holiday season.
The process can be any where from an hour to a good part of the day, depending on what you and your family wants to gain from the experience.
The choices for selecting a New Jersey grown live tree are many. You can choose to cut your own tree, or pick a live tree and have it cut for you, or buy a live tree already cut, or buy a living tree you can plant.
Plastic artificial trees and the manufacturing process used to make them are only environmental friendly if you plan to keep them for at least ten years. Furthermore, when it's time to dump the plastic trees in the trash they add to the problem.
New Jersey tree farms grow these trees for Christmas. It's their business and to stay in business they need to replenish their supply and plant more each spring.
To extend the experience to a family fun event, you can venture off to a Christmas tree farm that offers sleigh rides, hay rides and related winter events and fun.
A fresh-cut Christmas tree not only will bring warmth, beauty and the rich scents of the season to your home, but also will last throughout the holidays if given proper care.
When choosing a tree, select one that best suits your needs. Determine where will it be located in the home, and what type of ornaments you have - are they heavy or light? These considerations will help you select the species, the height, shape and density.
Amongst the variety of species of Christmas trees grown in New Jersey, the best choices for needle retention are all the pines; the Douglas-fir, Concolor, and Fraser Fir are also excellent. The Colorado Blue Spruce is very good, and the Norway and White Spruces are fair.
While this listing is up to date as of this writing, last minute weather and business conditions at a tree farm may change and it is strongly recommended that you call the farm in advance to confirm their supply, their hours of operation, and whether they are continuing to allow choose-and-cut or just precut trees. Do not drive out there if you can’t reach them by phone!
