What to expect at the Christmas Tree Farm

At Beavers Christmas Tree Farm, you will have a family, fun experience which include selecting and cutting a Christmas Tree, the perfect time and place for photographs, hot chocolate, hay rides, a drive into the country and an experience that will last for a lifetime.

But there are some things that should be aware of if you have never been to a Christmas Tree Farm before.

  • CASH & CHECKS (with proper i.d.) will be accepted.
  • Most tree farms keep their fields very well groomed, but there are some things that are beyond the farmer’s control. Be careful of fire-ant mounds, tree stumps, an occasional blackberry vine, uneven ground and sharp saws.
  • Go to the farm prepared for a day in the country. Wear comfortable shoes and old clothes. Bring rain gear if the weather is threatening. The “cutter downers” and the “loader uppers” should also have gloves.
  • Beaver’s always has good free hot cocoa available for you.  If you would like additional food, depending on when you come, we have some good eats for you.
  • Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash at all times. Please don’t let him “mark” other people’s trees.  Please also clean up after your pet.
  • Saws are usually provided by the farm operator. Beavers will provide you with a hand sawbut you are welcome to bring your own hand saws.
  • Some farms measure and price their trees individually, others sell them by the foot. Ask about the pricing policy before heading out in the field. At Beavers Tree Farm, all of our trees are priced with a tag.  Before cutting be sure you check that the tree is tagged.
  • Head in to the field and select the tree that fits your predetermined needs. Check the trunk to be sure that it is sufficiently straight. Keep in mind that pines will usually have, at least, some crook in their trunks. Also check that the tree has a sufficiently long handle to accommodate your stand.
  • In the fall of the year ALL pines drop, or shed, a certain portion of their oldest needles which is a normal part of the life cycle of the tree as the tree is prepares itself for winter. Most farms provide shaking, or blowing services so that you will depart with a perfectly clean pine. Beavers Tree Farm does provide Shaking and Netting!
    • Cutting the tree is easiest as a two person project. The “cutter downer” usually lies on the ground. While the helper holds the bottom limbs up. While the cut is being made, the helper should tug on the tree lightly to ensure that the saw kerf remains open so that the saw does not bind. The tugging force should be applied to the side of the tree opposite the cut. A back cut should be made first with the final cut coming from the opposite side.
    • Bring the tree to the processing area where it will be cleaned and netted. Netting makes transporting and handling the tree substantially easier.
  • When you are checking out, remember to pick up a tree removal bag. It can be used as a tree skirt and then pulled up around the tree to help keep the floors clean when the tree is being taken down.

Christmas Tree Selecting Tips

Tips on selecting a real tree at a choose your own Christmas Tree Farm.

Remember, Christmas trees purchased from local Christmas tree farm are as fresh as a Christmas tree can ever be.

EVALUATE YOUR NEEDS BEFORE DEPARTING FOR THE FARM

  • Measure the ceiling height in the room where the tree will be displayed. The trees in the field look small when the sky is the ceiling. Don’t overbuy.
  • Measure the width of the area of the room where the tree will be displayed. Most trees on tree farms are trimmed to an 80% taper. So a tree that’s 10′ tall will be 8′ wide. A tree that will fit in the room vertically may be entirely too big horizontally.
  • Are there any individuals in the household who are allergic to pine sap; if so, consider another species such as Leyland, Sapphire, etc. Most pine and fir trees are dormant by late November, so an allergy to pollen should not be a concern for most people.
  • What decorating theme will be used? Some species have more open foliage, stiffer branches or longer needles. Research the characteristics of the different species on the NCTA website realchristmastrees.org, then if you live in the Alabama area, come to Beavers Christmas Tree Farm.

Caring for your Christmas Tree

How to Care for a Cut Christmas Tree

  1. If storing, keep outdoors in water away from sun and wind.
  2. If not freshly cut when taken inside, cut 1/4 inch off the bottom
  3. Keep tree away from all heat sources including vents, radiators, fireplaces and televisions.
  4. Be sure that your lights sets are in good working order before decorating your tree
  5. Place your Christmas Tree in water
  6. Be sure to use a stand that can hold water and a stand that fits your Christmas Tree
  7. Decorate your tree taking care and using caution when using Christmas Tree lights. Be sure to follow all safety recommendations and inspect lights prior to installation and never overload circuits.  Be sure to turn off lights when leaving your home.
  8. Keep in mind that the freshness of a tree you just cut is greater than one from a retail lot. Trees from the Choose Your Own farm won’t absorb as much water initially as other trees because it has not had time to dry out, unless you don’t put it into a water holding stand right away.

Recycle Your Christmas Tree

In a national survey, 69% of consumers who used a Real Christmas Tree said they recycled theirs in community programs. Real Christmas Trees are recycled for five main types of large-scale uses for post-harvest trees.

These are:

  • chipping (chippings are used for various things from mulch to hiking trails)
  • beachfront erosion prevention
  • lake and river shoreline stabilization
  • fish habitat
  • river delta sedimentation management

Consumers can access local Christmas Tree recycling information by typing in their zip code at NCTA’s www.realchristmastrees.org or at the EARTH’s 911 website http://www.cleanup.org, or they can call 1-800-CLEANUP.

Today around 98% of Real Christmas Trees are grown on farms throughout all 50 states and Canada.

Real trees are a renewable, recyclable resource, and Real Trees are planted to be harvested just as corn and/or pumpkins are cultivated for a harvest.

For each Real Christmas Tree harvested, up to three new seedlings are planted in its place, depending on farm size and current field rotation. Young trees in their rapid growth years have a high rate of photosynthesis and thus produce more oxygen than older trees.

This year, over 70 million new seedlings were planted by Christmas Tree farmers all over America.
