Can you believe it is the Christmas season already...
This beautiful Fall weather is making for ideal conditions to finish up our final tree shearing and field mowing. We have had requests for un-sheared trees over the last few years, so we have not sheared all the trees as heavily as we might have in the past. We have many tall trees again this year.
Our trees are 100% organically grown. The only fertilizer they receive is from the sheep grazing in the tree field. The trees are not sprayed with any herbicide. Insect damage is held to a minimum by growing only one species of Christmas tree, the Fraser Fir. We have more damage from the deer rubbing their antlers on the trees, than any other source.
Our barn and carriage house are being readied and our kitchen is now stocked with the ingredients for this year’s chocolate chip and sugar cookies. The wood stove is ready to be fired up, and, we look forward to welcoming you back for another season of holiday cheer.
We greatly enjoy catching up with you and seeing how your families have grown and changed. Some of you have come to Abbott Tree Farm for almost 23 years!
This year our field is again filled with many beautiful Fraser fir trees of all shapes and sizes. However, we are limited on the trees in the 7' to 8' range. These fresh trees sell out quickly. In order to prevent over selling of these trees, we will be shortening our selling season by one weekend this year. Please check our hours listing and if you have any questions you can always call Debbie during the week or Curtis during the weekends at 508-248-4416. As always, meander through the field and if you need help cutting your tree, just ask one of our staff to do the sawing for you. In fact, have them then bring that chosen tree direct to your vehicle and tie it on. Of course, then you can swing in the carriage house for hot cider and home baked cookies afterwards!
As always, we try to keep an eye on the economy and do all we can to make having a fresh Christmas tree possible. Our tree prices for 7 and 8 foot trees remain unchanged again this year. Trees 9 feet and over have increased slightly. In order to streamline things upon check out, our pricing now includes the Mass state sales tax.
7 foot tree $53.00
8 foot tree $59.00
9 foot tree $65.00
10 foot tree $75.00
11 foot tree $90.00
12 foot tree $125.00
Over 12 feet priced individually
Baling of trees is $2.00 per tree. Please note that some of our trees are so full that baling is impossible.
We look forward to seeing you once again this year and wish you a Merry Christmas!
Thank you and Best Wishes for the new year!
