Please note that we are no longer offerring a Christmas Lights event at the farm.
Similar to Leylands in reduced allergy problems, they have even a greater ability to remain fresh for a long time. The Murrays have a more open leaf texture than Leylands and have stronger limbs for holding your heavier ornaments. They also have a little darker green color than the Leylands and have more fragrance although still a light subtle fragrance. Murray tree height this year will range from 4-13 feet.
Leylands (Limited Supply Available)
Leylands have a softer and fuller foliage than the Murrays but will also stay fresh for a long time if constantly kept in water. The Leylands have a light but a very fresh scent. Because of their weaker limb strength, heavier ornaments will need to be placed deeper into the tree or hung on the tree light wires. This year’s crop of Leylands are mostly in the 7-13 foot height.

Do the trees come with a tree stand?
Tree stands do not come with a tree, but we do have them for sale in our Tree Check-out Barn and the Country Store.

Just ask a team member to tie yellow flagging tape on the trunk before it is loaded on a trailer.

Yes, all trees under 11 foot will be shaken and baled at no additional cost. Trees taller than 11 feet are too big to be baled.
