My Grandfather started his tree business 35 years ago on 4 acres here on Long Island and there is nothing like a real tree! Dad just bought 60 acres in Upstate NY and we'll probably plant there as well pretty soon. We grow Douglas, Fraiser and Concolor Firs as wells as Colorodo Blue and Norway Spruce. We grow some Scotch and White Pines, but they make better landscape/screening trees than Christmas trees. The Concolor is starting to turn into a great seller as they have a citrus smell which people seem to like.
My Grandfather passed away 10 years ago and my father has been running the business ever since. He's expanded it to includ alot of landscape trees, but I enjoy helping out on the weekends...brings back some great memories. Here is our site:
